River restoration : managing the uncertainty in restoring physical habitat

Author: Stephen E Darby; David Sear; Wiley InterScience (Online service)
Publisher: Chichester, England ; Hoboken, NJ : Wiley, ©2008.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
River restoration projects are designed to recreate functional characteristics within a context of physical stability. They tend to focus on the development and application of geomorphic principles for river restoration design. Due to different models obtaining different results on the same problem, incomplete or absent data, and climatic/social/cultural changes, the designers and managers of such projects  Read more...
