Natural rivers, hydromorphological quality and river restoration : a challenging new agenda for appied fluvial geomorphology

Description :
This paper focuses on the problematic definition of natural hydromorphological quality for rivers, the assessment of departures from it, and the ecologically driven strategies for restoration that must be delivered by regulators under the European Union's Water Framework Directive (WFD). Currently available definitions of natural or reference conditions derive largely from a concept of damage, principally to channel morphology. Such definitions may, however, be too static to form sustainable strategies for management and regulation, but attract public support.
