Description - Incised River Channels by Stephen Darby
Problems associated with river channel incision include undermining of structures and loss of habitat in degraded channels, downstream sedimentation, degradation of riparian and floodplain vegetation, and severe channel bank erosion and widening. This book explores the causes and controls of river channel incision and covers process-form interactions in incised and incising river channels. It includes degradation and local scour processes, and bank erosion processes and mechanisms in incised channels. It takes into account responses of the river system to downcutting, as well as engineering and management issues.
