About this Book

This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities.

  • management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management
  • describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution
  • demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management
  • based on real case studies and authors extensive experience
  • applicable to river systems worldwide
  • synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management
