This book brings together the results of several years of experimental work - much of it never before published - in drainage basin evolution, hydrology, river-channel morphology and sedimentology. These investigations are related to real-world applications, particularly geological exploration and mapping. The book shows how awareness of natural phenomena can improve management of the natural environment, such as the control of rivers and eroding gullies.
