Changing River Channels, Hardback Book

Changing River Channels Hardback

Edited by A.M. Gurnell, Geoff E. Petts


Changing River Channels is intended for all those with an interest in the dynamics of river channels and their management.

Contributions are drawn from both the academic and river management communities and these provide perspectives based upon British, European and North American examples.

The chapters are organised into four sections which consider the magnitude and dimensions of river channel adjustments over different timescales; the processes which influence those adjustments, focussing particularly upon the roles of sediment transport and storage, and of vegetation; the information sources that are available for assessing the degree and nature of change; and finally, perspectives on the management of changing river channels.

This volume is one of two companion edited books to mark the contributions of Professors K.J.

Gregory and D. E. Walling to research on drainage basin form and processes.

Each presents a balanced range of contributions written by research colleagues and students.
