Overview Overview

This course begins by examining the environmental factors that control river channel equilibrium and form. The processes by which channel adjustment occurs in response to changes in these controlling factors are then considered through the investigation of different fluvial environments and the evidence for historical channel changes. Several related themes are covered including the unintentional effects human activities have on channel form and ways in which river channels can be effectively managed through understanding and working in harmony with the fluvial system.
