Rivers and Floodplains is concerned with the origin, geometry, water flow, sediment transport, erosion and deposition associated with modern alluvial rivers and floodplains, how they vary in time and space, and how this information is used to interpret deposits of ancient rivers and floodplains. There is specific reference to the types and lifestyles of organisms associated with fluvial environments, human interactions with rivers and floodplains, associated environmental and engineering concerns, as well as the economic aspects of fluvial deposits, particularly the modeling of fluvial hydrocarbon reservoirs and aquifers. Methods of studying rivers and floodplains and their deposits are also discussed. Although basic principles are emphasized, many examples are detailed.

Particular emphasis is placed on how an understanding of the nature of modern rivers and floodplains is required before any problems concerning rivers and floodplains, past or present, can be addressed rationally.

Rivers and Floodplains is designed as a core text for senior undergraduate and graduate students studying modern or ancient fluvial environments, particularly in earth sciences, environmental sciences and physical geography, but also in civil and agricultural engineering. College teachers, researchers, and practising professionals will also find the book an invaluable reference.


  • Presents a process-based approach, which is relevant to modern curricula.
  • Discusses methods of studying rivers and floodplains and their deposits.
  • Provides many detailed examples throughout the text.
  • Emphasises the basic principles of this subject.
  • As the first synthesis of this entire field, it will be a must-have for all students studying modern or ancient fluvial environments.
  • Teachers, researchers and practising professionals will find this an invaluable reference tool.

  • Rivers and Floodplains will also be of interest to geologists, geographers and engineers.

Recensione:

"...a welcome addition to the smaller number of advanced texts on the subject. It covers an area of Earth Science that is of interest to a wide range of practitioners, and in which much new research has been published on a number of themes. The book is an excellent review of this work at a level that will be informtive and stimulating to research workers in a number of disciplines."
W A Mitchell, University of Durham, Geoscientist, January 2004

"...an excellent reference volume for anyone working on present day or ancient river material..."
The Open University Geological Society Journal, May 2004

"...a first–class resource for both researchers and interested graduate students in geology and geography."
Journal of Quaternary Science, September 2004

"...the material is very well presented, extremely well illustrated and very well suited to the intended audience. What the text does so well is a comprehensive integration of gemorphologic and engineering approaches...This text should be a must for all itnerested in multi–disciplinary analyses of rivers, and fluvial deposits."
Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, August 2005

"...this book represents a significant and distinctive contribution to the specialist literature on sedimentology, river form and process in modern and ancient rivers. It will aid the interpretation of sediments in the context of river and floodplain development for the advanced student and academic."
The Holocene, June 2006
