In recent years there has been a marked increase in funding andemployment in river restoration. Methods in Fluvial Geomorphologyprovides an integrated approach to the interdisciplinary nature ofthe subject and offers guidance for researchers and professionalson the tools available to answer questions on river management onvery difference scales.* Each chapter is organised to cover everything from generalconcepts to specific techniques
* Topics covered include evolution of methods, guiding concepts, aframework for deciding when to apply specific tools, advantages andlimitation of the tools, sources of data, equipment and suppliesneeded, and a summary table
* Provides the professional with a useful handbook covering alltools used in fluvial geomorphology
* Also provides valuable information on the advantages andlimitations of the tools
* All chapters include case studies to give examples of theapplications of the tools discussed
