About the Edition

Fluvial Hydrosystems provides a unified approach to the study of running waters and aims to provide a scientific basis for sustainable management of rivers. It differs from traditional texts in viewing rivers as structured, four-dimensional systems and integrating ecological and geomorphological approaches to provide a holistic perspective on river dynamics. Advanced students of geomorphology, ecology, environmental science, land use and civil engineering will all benefit from this wide-ranging and stimulating textbook.

Book Editor(s): Dr G. Mathias Kondolf. Cited by:   The state-of-the-art in fluvial hydrodynamics can be examined only through a careful exploration of the theoretical development and applied engineering technology. The book is primarily focused, since most up-to-date research findings in the field are presented, on the research aspects that involve a comprehensive knowledge of sediment dynamics Brand: Springer Berlin Heidelberg.

The general traits of these three levels are described in the introductory chapter of this book. For monitoring fluvial systems, as with other geologic systems, selection of a high-level method (i.e., level 3) does not negate the concurrent use of the lessintense, sophisticated methods (i.e., levels 1 and 2).

The book incorporates material on methods and techniques of data collection, analysis and interpretation, making extensive use of case studies the experienced authors go some way towards demystifying applied fluvial geomorphology by demonstrating that, while there is still an element of judgement, major contributions to.

Geosciences, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, The goal of this Special Issue of Geosciences is to gather high-quality original research articles and reviews on the analysis of the human impact upon the biogeochemical functioning of pristine to highly-impacted large fluvial (±10 3 m 3 s-1) or lacustrine (±10 2 km 2) systems.

This excellent text is a pioneering work in the study of landform development under processes associated with running water. Its primary emphasis is on subjects that were the focus of the authors' studies in both field and laboratory.

Part I deals with the process of change in the evolving landscape. Part II explores process and form, and Part III, the effects of time/5(2).

Fluvial systems are dominated by rivers and streams. Stream erosion may be the most important geomporphic agent. Fluvial processes sculpt the landscape, eroding landforms, transporting sediment, and depositing it to create new landforms.

Writing a book of this kind at the end of my career has been an attempt to reflect the enjoyment that I have derived from study of the land surface of the Earth. I hope that similar enjoyment may be experienced by some readers. Fluvial is a term used in geography and Earth science to refer to the processes associated with rivers and streams and the deposits and landforms created by them.

Water evaporates from water bodies such as rivers, lakes and seas, and from plants and trees. The water vapor rises, cools and condenses to form clouds. Rain falls from the clouds. In fluvial systems, the wetlands, streams, and flood plains are hydrologically connected, to some degree.

Stable systems usually provide the greatest ecological benefits, exhibit a high degree of connection, and are in a state of dynamic equilibrium.

Fluvial systems exist in a state of movement where physical processes are constantly underway. Abstract: Introduction. ‘Fluvial hydrosystems’ and ‘hydromorphology’ Channel—floodplain interactions.
