River Book from C.H.I.P.S.

River Confluences, Tributaries and the Fluvial Network
edited by Stephen P. Rice

River Confluences, Tributaries and the Fluvial Network brings together state of the art thinking on confluence dynamics tributary impacts and the links between processes at these scales and river network functions.

River Confluences, Tributaries and the Fluvial Network is unique in focus, content, scope and in bringing together engineering, ecological and geomorphological approaches to the three key areas of river system science.

Contents

River Channel Confluences

  1. Introduction to Part I: river channel confluences
  2. Modelling hydraulics and sediment transport at river confluences
  3. Sediment transport, bed morphology and the sedimentology of river channel confluences
  4. Large river channel confluences
  5. Management of confluences
  6. Unconfined confluences in braided rivers

Tributary-Main-Stem Interactions

  1. Introduction to Part II: tributary-main-stem interactions
  2. Spatial identification of tributary impacts in river networks
  3. Effects of tributaries on main-channel geomorphology
  4. The ecological importance of tributaries and confluences
  5. Tributaries and the management of main-stem geomorphology
  6. Confluence environments at the scale of river networks

Channel Networks

  1. Introduction to Part III: channel networks
  2. Hydrologic dispersion in fluvial networks
  3. Sediment delivery: new approaches to modelling an old problem
  4. Numerical predictions of the sensitivity of grain size and channel slope to an increase in precipitation
  5. Solute transport along stream and river networks
  6. Fluvial valley networks on Mars
