River Channel Management; Towards Sustainable Catchment Hydrosystems

Downs, P. and Gregory, K. (2004) River Channel Management; Towards Sustainable Catchment Hydrosystems, London, UK, Hodder Arnold, 395pp.

Record type: Book


River Channel Management is the first book to deal comprehensively with recent revolutions in river channel management. It explores the multi-disciplinary nature of river channel management in relation to modern management techniques that bear the background of the entire drainage basin in mind, use channel restoration where appropriate, and are designed to be sustainable. River Channel Management is divided into five sections: The Introduction outlines the need for river channel management. Retrospective Review offers an overview of twentieth century engineering methods and the ways that river channel systems operate. Realisation explains how greater understanding of river channel adjustments, channel hazards and river basin planning created a context for twenty-first century management. Requirements for Management explains and examines environmental assessment, restoration-based approaches, and methods that work towards 'design with nature'; Final Revision speculates about prospects for twenty-first century river channel management.
River Channel Management is written for higher-level undergraduates and for postgraduates in geography, ecology, engineering, planning, geology and environmental science, for professionals involved in river channel management, and for staff in environmental agencies.
