Fluvial geomorphology and river engineering : future roles utilizing a fluvial hydrosystems framework

Changing the face of the earth-engineering geomorphology

Auteurs :
GILVEAR, D.J.
GIARDINO, J.R.

Description :
Rather than looking back and examining the linkage between geomorphology and engineering over the last few decades, this paper seeks to identify how fluvial geomorphologists can further their contribution to the field engineering and educate engineers about the value of geomorphology. Areas in which geomorphologists will increasingly be able to complement engineers in river management include risk and environmental impact assessment, floodplain planning, river audits, determination of instream flow needs, river restoration, and design of ecologically acceptable channels and structures.
