Management and restoration of fluvial systems with broad historical changes and human impacts.


Management and restoration of fluvial systems with broad historical changes and human impacts.

Ed. by L. Allan James et al.

Geological Society of America


244 pages



Special paper; 451


Scientists and engineers in the earth and environmental sciences, along with some scholars of economics, public policy, and related fields, explore changes in river channels. They combine insights from classical concepts of fluvial geomorphology with modern notions of river management and restoration, integrated watershed science, modern fluvial geomorphology, and historical channel-change reconstructions. The 14 papers cover large-scale, long-term sediment and geomorphic changes; hydrologic considerations for river restoration; and river management and restoration. They were selected from presentations at the Society's October 2007 annual meeting in Denver.
