Geomorphology and River Management

This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities.

management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management

describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution

demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management

based on real case studies and authors extensive experience

applicable to river systems worldwide

synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management

Gary Brierley has worked on river systems in various parts of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Japan, North America, and Australasia. He completed undergraduate work in the UK, postgraduate work in Canada, and postdoctoral work in Australia.

Kirstie Fryirs has worked on various river systems in Australia. Her PhD developed a framework for assessing geomorphic river condition and recovery potential.

Gary and Kirstie are codevelopers of the River Styles framework and the River Styles short course.
