  • A study on fluvial dynamic geomorphology and its experiment and simulation
  • As a branch of geomorphology, the fluvial dynamic geomorphology is a marginal science among fluid dynamics, sediment mechanics and fluvial geomorphology. With physical modelling by similarity based on Newtonian mechanics, and principle of the same
  • effect but different structure based on systematic theory, it is possible to study properties, formation and processes in fluvial dynamic geomorphology. A new research method, which is a combination of mathematical simulation by computer with physical

  • Soil erosion in developing countries: where geomorphology fears to tread!
  • Experimental geomorphology and landscape ecosystem changes (proceedings memorial symposium Prof. Jan De Ploey)
  • Applied geomorphology ; Concept ; Developing countries ; Forecast ; Model ; Rill wash ; Soil erosion
  • Geomorphology claims an expertise in the study of soil erosion and the development of conservation solutions. As applied scientists, geomorphologists could assist their cause greatly by providing quality information on erosion process rates
  • and their impact in a timely and applicable way. Descrpitive and predictive models hold scope for extending geomorphological information beyond empirical confines. Examples throughout the paper are drawn from projects in South Asia, South America and southern

  • Aquifer ; Climatic variation ; Dune ; Geomorphology ; Kuwait ; Palaeoclimatology ; Palaeosol ; Pediment ; Tectonics
  • This paper represents the first attempt to divide the surface geomorphology of Kuwait into four major geomorphic zones: a) the coastal zone; b) the wadis and ridges zone; c) the lowland zone; and d) the dune fields zone. Tectonics as well as climate

  • Special issue: geomorphology at work
  • Applied geomorphology ; Concept ; Desertification ; Ecology ; Fluvial processes ; Geomorphology ; Global change ; Human impact ; Soil erosion
  • The title of this symposium represented in this special issue, properly conveys the application of information from geology to the concerns of society. The A. has chosen to discuss geomorphology at play, not to contrast it with work, but rather
  • to point out what it sometimes called play. Each of the papers represents a contribution to the better utilization and management of natural resources based on an understanding of the geomorphology of the system, including its form and processes.

  • Challenges and objectives for geomorphology in U.K. river management
  • Special issue: geomorphology at work
  • Applied geomorphology ; Bank erosion ; Drainage ; England ; Flood ; Floodplain ; Fluvial erosion ; Fluvial processes ; Human impact ; River management ; United Kingdom ; Wales ; Watershed
  • This paper reviews some of the challenges and objectives in the application of fluvial geomorphology to improved river management in the U.K. It describes the mechanisms by which geomorphology can be applied to solve problems, including
  • the development of design guidance, policy, management approaches, procedures and training. Perhaps some of the most significant challenges for luvial geomorphology in U.K. river management during the next decade will concern river and floodplain restoration.

  • In this paper the AA. quantify the relationship between the uplift and geomorphology of the S. Alps, by using regression analysis of empirical data sets. They study the point to point bivariate association between uplift and geomorphology, which
  • refers to the correspondence between uplift and geomorphology, over identical spatial locations.

  • The geomorphology of Australia's fluvial systems: retrospect, perspect, and prospect
  • 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

  • The Spey Bay geomorphological study
  • Special issue: geomorphology at work
  • The Spey Bay coastline and the estuary of the River Spey exhibit a rapidly evolving planform. They provide an opportunity to study geomorphological changes in a coupled coastal/estuarine system which can be measured over hours and days rather than
  • the years and decades associated with more slowly evolving landscape features. The improved understanding of geomorphological processes that has been achieved has enabled engineers to formulate a new management strategy. Methods used included historical
