Editorial Reviews

Review

“I highly recommend the landmark and very accessible book Gravel Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments edited by Michael Church, Pascale Biron, and André Roy, to any river engineers, geomorphologists, environmental groups, policy makers, industry leaders, river managers, and advanced students who are seeking a complete overview of the latest knowledge in the processes, tools, and environments of gravel-bed rivers. This book provides the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of information and research available, and is definitely a landmark publication.”  (Blog Business World, 7 February 2012)

 

From the Back Cover

Gravel-Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments presents a definitive review of current knowledge of gravel-bed rivers, derived from the 7th International Gravel-bed Rivers Workshop, the 5-yearly meeting of the world’s leading authorities in the field.

Each chapter in the book has been specifically commissioned to represent areas in which recent progress has been made in the field. The topics covered also represent a coherent progression through the principal areas of the subject (hydraulics; sediment transport; river morphology; tools and methods; applications of science).

  • Definitive review of the current knowledge of gravel-bed rivers
  • Coverage of both fundamental and applied topics
  • Edited by leading academics with contributions from key researchers
  • Thoroughly edited for quality and consistency to provide coherent and logical progression through the principal areas of the subject.

Gravel-Bed Rivers: Processes, Tools, Environments provides an up-to-date report of the state of the field and serves as an essential resource for river engineers and ecologists, geomorphologists, river managers and advanced students in these fields.
