Gravel-bed rivers: fluvial processes, engineering, and management
A collection of papers by an international group of experts that clarifies the physical processes operating in gravel-bed rivers. Identifies engineering and management techniques based on natural flow processes to minimize the effect of river engineering and water resource development on river systems. Promotes improved design and modelling methods. Discusses future research requirements.
