Palaeoflood hydrology : an emerging science

Auteur :
SAINT-LAURENT, D.

Description :
In the context of climate change, there is growing interest in the study of past floods, or palaeofloods. Researchers are attempting to reconstitute the chronology of past floods, especially with respect to past or subrecent climatic changes. The A. examines, through a literature review, the various approaches used in the study o palaeofloods (geology, geomorphology and ecology). This kind of study has seen major advances, which can be explained partly by the interest generated by global climate change and its effect on river-system dynamics.
