Description

Gravel-Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments presents adefinitive review of current knowledge of gravel-bed rivers,derived from the 7th International Gravel-bed RiversWorkshop, the 5-yearly meeting of the world's leadingauthorities in the field. Each chapter in the book has been specifically commissioned torepresent areas in which recent progress has been made in thefield. The topics covered also represent a coherent progressionthrough the principal areas of the subject (hydraulics; sedimenttransport; river morphology; tools and methods; applications ofscience). * Definitive review of the current knowledge of gravel-bedrivers * Coverage of both fundamental and applied topics * Edited by leading academics with contributions from keyresearchers * Thoroughly edited for quality and consistency to providecoherent and logical progression through the principal areas of thesubject.
