Auteurs :
TOOTH, S.
NANSON, G.C.

Description :
Review of the study and geomorphology of Australia's fluvial systems by offering comment on the development, concerns and future of the subject. Development of the idea of a distinctive geomorphology of Australian fluvial systems that often contrast with Anglo-American observations is outlined and illustrated with particular reference to fluvial studies in south-east Australia. Themes in contemporary Australian fluvial research are discussed and include long-term landscape evolution, thresholds and riverine response to secular trends in climate. Consideration is also given to present deficiencies in research and to future priorities.
