Description: Online-Ressource.
Contents: Recent developments and perspectives in mountain river research.- Human impact and exploitation of water resources in the Northern Alps (Tyrol and Bavaria).- Model investigations into the influence of renaturalization on sediment transport.- Bedload transport and discharge in the Erlenbach stream.- Sediment transport and water discharge during high flows in an instrumented watershed.- Luminophor experiments in the Saalach and Salzach rivers.- The downstream fining of gravel-bed sediments in the Alpine Rhine River.- River channel adjustment and sediment budget in response to a catastrophic flood event (Lainbach catchment, Southern Bavaria).- The influence of channel steps on coarse bed load transport in mountain torrents: case study using the radio tracer technique `PETSY'.- The significance of fluvial erosion, channel storage and gravitational processes in sediment production in a small mountainous catchment area.- An attempt at modelling suspended sediment concentration after storm events in an Alpine torrent.- Investigations of slope erosion in the Northern Limestone Alps.- Streambed dynamics and grain-size characteristics of tow gravel rivers of the Northern Apennines, Italy.- Discharge and fluvial sediment transport in a semi-arid high mountain catchment, Agua Negra, San Juan, Argentina.- Sediment transport and discharge in a high arctic catchment (Liefdefjorden, NW Spitsbergen).- Hydraulics and sediment transport dynamics controlling step-pool formation in high gradient streams: A flume experiment.- Short term temporal variations in bedload transport rates: Squaw Creek, Montana, USA and Nahal Yatir and Nahal Estemoa, Israel.- Measuring systems to determine the velocity field in and close to the roughness sublayer.- An attempt at determination of incipient bed load motion in mountain streams.- Quantification of textural particle characteristics by image analysis of sediment surfaces-examples from active and paleo-surfaces in steep, coarse-grained mountain environments.- Some considerations on debris flow rheology.
