Description :
The aim of this paper is to unravel connections between various subjects related to river channel patterns, including bar theory, bank erosion, floodplain sedimentation, and interactions with vegetation. The A. argues that the relation between channel and floodplain is the outstanding problem to be solved for better understanding of the morphogenesis of rivers. Therefore combining field study, experiments and numerical modelling will lead to rapid progress in the coming decade.
