Format: Hardcover
This is a very well written and informative book, a pleasure to read and look at with its excellent illustrations. It covers many aspects of rivers from the fundamentals of flow, erosion and sediment (no equations) to ecologgy and management. Highly recommended to all students and others who need a broad overview of the role of rivers in the the environment and society. Only wish I had found it earlier.
