  • The application of palaeohydrology in river management
  • This paper reviews recent changes in river management. These changes are characterised by a move from the notion of rivers as stable equilibrium forms to one of dynamic responsive ecosystems. Palaeohydrology is shown to be capable of providing
  • important and relevant information to river managers. Furthermore a series of emerging frameworks for incorporating geomorphology in river management exist wherein palaeohydrological data and analysis can be directly interfaced with the river management
  • River classification for management: the geomorphology of the Sabie River in the Eastern Transvaal
  • Channel geometry ; Classification ; Fluvial processes ; Methodology ; River management ; South Africa ; Stream ; Transvaal
  • Analysis of the Sabie River has facilitated the development of a hierarchical classification suitable as a framework for fluvial research in variety of disciplines and at a veriety of scales. - (AJC)
  • When is a River not a River ? Consideration of the legal definition of a river for geomorphologists practising in New South Wales, Australia
  • Australia ; Concept ; Definition ; Environmental management ; Geomorphology ; Legislation ; New South Wales ; Perception ; River bed ; Stream ; Water resources
  • This paper examines why the definition of a river is an important and ongoing management issue, and outlines the development of legal definitions of river. Finally, the role of fluvial geomorphology is discussed with respect to the definition
  • of a river and its channel. This analysis will reveal whether the existing legislative framework adequately reflects the physical realities of rivers and watercourses so as to facilitate their conservation.

  • The management of river systems in conservation areas in South Africa is problematic. A framework is developed for predicting changes in river state under different (natural and controlled) flow regimes. The approach involves river classification
  • Shifting river management toward salmon restoration in the Columbia River basin
  • Aquaculture ; Economic impact ; Energy ; Power station ; Resource management ; River basin ; Stream ; United States of America
  • The Columbia River Basin is the site of a conflict over two resources : hydroelectricity and Pacific salmon. Since 1982, the Pacific Northwest Power Planning Council has endeavored to mediate the conflict by implementing a water budget measure
  • Geomorphological river channel reconnaissance for river analysis, engineering and management
  • Applied geomorphology ; Bank erosion ; Channel geometry ; England ; Environmental conservation ; Flood ; Fluvial processes ; Habitat ; Hydraulic works ; River bed ; Survey ; United Kingdom
  • engineers and managers wishing to work with, rather than against, nature when undertaking engineering and maintenance operations or devising management policies. The utility of geomorphological river reconnaissance is illustrated using a case study from
  • Geomorphological studies involving river reconnaissance, analysis (both qualitative and quantitative) and assessment can supply information on the form and physical processes operating in a fluvial system. This information is of value to river
  • the River Blackwater, southeast England.
  • The sinuosity of alluvial river channels in the seasonally wet tropical environment: case study of river Elemi, southwestern Nigeria
  • Channel geometry ; Fluvial erosion ; Fluvial processes ; Longitudinal section ; Nigeria ; River management ; Stream ; Tropical zone ; Vegetation
  • tropical environment. The implications of the findings for river management are also briefly highlighted.
  • The aim of this paper is to improve the understanding of the nature and dynamics of river channel patterns in the humid tropics through detailed survey and quantitative analysis of the plan geometry of alluvial streams in a seasonally wet humid
  • Challenges and objectives for geomorphology in U.K. river management
  • 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.
  • Opportunities for incorporating geography into the river basin management
  • Environment ; Hydraulic works ; Hydrology ; Natural resources ; Slovenia ; Stream ; Sustainable development ; Water management ; Watershed
  • Geography in Slovenia is not sufficiently involved in the management of river basins, so the A. designed a model of geographical approach to integrated management of water resources presented on the example of the Sotla river basin. He considered
  • the river basin with its inner diversity and heterogeneity as a basic spatial unit of management. This approach would be a supplement to present sustainable strategies of water management and it could be applied by appropriate study programmes in geography
  • Hydrological analysis of flow variation of the Gila River in Safford Valley, southeast Arizona
  • Arizona ; Climatic variation ; Discharge ; Flood ; Fluvial hydrology ; Precipitation ; Stream ; Stream flow ; United States of America ; Water management
  • This paper investigates the temporal variations in flow of the Gila River in southeastern Arizona and investigates the relative influence of climate and land management on the runoff dynamics of the river.
  • Healthy Yellow River's essence and indicators

  • This paper aims at expounding the essence, criteria, indicators and methodologies to build a healthy Yellow River, which provides theoric guidelines to the implementation of the new river management concept.
  • Land accretion of the Yellow River delta as influenced by drainage basin factors
  • China ; Coastal dynamics ; Delta ; Environmental management ; Erosion ; Huang He ; Human impact ; Precipitation ; Watershed
  • In this study, an effort has been made to elucidate the effect of changing human activities and precipitation on land accretion of the Yellow River delta, to provide a stronger basis for environmental management in the Yellow River drainage basin
  • River of dreams : on the gulf between theoretical and practical aspects of an upland river restoration
  • Conceptual model ; Decision making process ; Ecology ; England and Wales ; Environmental management ; Gravel ; Model ; Rehabilitation ; River bed ; Stream ; United Kingdom ; Watershed
  • This paper is concerned with development and application of a conceptual model of the river restoration process and, through a specific case study, a demonstration of the challenges that arise when combining ecological and geomorphological
