Product Description


...an excellent job of bringing together important and illustrative works from the literature... The text is clearly written, well organised and easy to follow throughout... I would recommend it as a very good book.
Journal of Geological Education

The text is well organised and very readable, with smooth transitions between topics, a difficult task when trying to be both concise and comprehensive.
Geographical Review

Extremely readable and therefore most suitable as a student textbook... The author provides a summary that is a credit to his ability to assimilate and synthesize, indeed a credit to his authorship... I can thoroughly recommend this book to serious practitioners and students of fluvial geomorphology. It is a very perceptive and well written book
Australian Geographer

Any department teaching or supervising postgraduate courses or research in fluvial geomorphology would be wise to ensure that a copy of this book is in the library, and preferably on the book shelf of the lecturer concerned.
The South African Geographical Journal

This is a welcome and sorely needed update of David Knighton's popular text. There are many new or clarified illustrations, including photographs. The new typesetting is a distinct improvement...the index is more readable and slightly fuller..In all, the book is clearly a significant contribution to teaching textbooks...that should inspire many new students.

HASH(0x8bd88180) out of 5 stars Very good reference for applied fluvial geomorphology 23 Feb. 2009
By Gough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a practicing fluvial geomorphologist with 25 years of experience in river restoration and management, this is one is in the top dozen I reach for when I have fundamental questions or need a reference for a report. Should be on your bookshelf if you do this work.

HASH(0x8bd881d4) out of 5 stars A hard read, but lots of good info 20 Feb. 2009
By Gretchen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is basically a lit review of everything fluvial geomorphology. It is a great resource, but a bit difficult to read. One frustrating thing is that because it is so extensive in what it covers, it never give you a definitave answer. Instead it will give you every argument from every side. That's good if that's what you're after.
HASH(0x8bd884b0) out of 5 stars If you have to take a class 7 Jan. 2013
By J. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This class made my brain hurt something fierce. For gosh sakes, use online supplements! There are quite a few powerpoints out there that can help explain things too. Knighton's book seemed well organized, really good index, and pretty clear (for fluvial geomorphology). No complaints, other than the unavoidable content.
