River Meander Dynamics - Virtual Special Issue, July 2011

River Meander Dynamics

Guest Editors: J. M. Hooke, E. Gautier and G. Zolezzi

This Virtual Special Issues features a selection of the best of the papers arising from the Symposium on River Meander Dynamics held at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) Congress in 2008. The aim of the Symposium was to bring together researchers working on river meandering, particularly those taking different approaches, including those of the large and burgeoning modelling community as well as those more traditionally empirically-based.
