About this book

&i;Fundamentals of Fluvial Geomorphology&o; provides an accessible introduction to the study of river landforms and the processes that shape them. Rivers are significant geomorphological agents, they show an amazing diversity of form and behaviour and transfer water and sediment from the land surface to the oceans. This book examines how river systems respond to environmental change and why this understanding is needed for successful river management. Highly dynamic in nature, river channels adjust and evolve over timescales that range from hours to tens of thousands of years or more and are found in a wide range of environments.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of recent developments in river channel management, clearly illustrating why an understanding of fluvial geomorphology is vital in channel preservation, environmentally sensitive design, and the restoration of degraded river channels.
