Contains a selection of 12 river studies that are extremely current and includes recently completed and ongoing original research. Fluvial sediment production and transport, overbank sedimentation, channel scour and hydraulic geometry, human impacts on river systems and the dynamics of large-scale river geomorphology recorded by satellite imagery are among the issues covered. Although the collection is thematic, it also reflects the rich diversity of perspectives and interests of international river scientists.
