This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities.
management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management
describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution
demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management
based on real case studies and authors extensive experience
applicable to river systems worldwide
synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management
