About this book

An updated treatment of management and geomorphology of large rivers around the world

The newly revised second edition of Large Rivers: Geomorphology and Management delivers a thoroughly updated exploration of the form and function of major rivers. The book combines a set of papers on the large rivers of the world, offering readers an insightful examination of a demanding subject. The second edition of the book includes fully updated and revised chapters, as well as three entirely new chapters on the Ganga, the Ayeyawady, and Arctic rivers.

This fascinating volume describes the environmental requirements for creating and maintaining a major river system, case studies on over a dozen large rivers from different continents in a variety of physical environments, and the measurement and management of large rivers. An important book, Large Rivers sheds light on a subject lacking in comprehensive study. Readers will benefit from the inclusion of:
- A thorough introduction to the geology of large river systems, hydrology and discharge, transcontinental moving and storage of sediment, and the greatest floods and largest rivers
- An exploration of the classification, architecture, and evolution of large-river deltas
- Discussions of sedimentology and stratigraphy of large river deposits, including their recognition in the ancient record and the distinction from incised valley fills
- An examination of the effects of tectonism, climate change, and sea-level change on the form and behaviour of the modern amazon river and its floodplain
- Measurement and management of large rivers
- The effect of climatic change on large rivers

Perfect for postgraduate students and researchers in fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, sedimentary geology, and river management, Large Rivers: Geomorphology and Management will also earn a place in the libraries of engineers and environmental consultants in the private and public sectors working on major rivers around the world.
