Summary:
"Bedrock river channels are important elements in the development of regional landscapes, sites of primary erosion that frequently generate spectacular features. Leading experts here provide the first integrated view of the characteristics and operation of this important, previously neglected, class of channels. Examples from several continents cover a wide range of spatial scales, from large river basins down to  Read more...

Abstract:

"Bedrock river channels are important elements in the development of regional landscapes, sites of primary erosion that frequently generate spectacular features. Leading experts here provide the first integrated view of the characteristics and operation of this important, previously neglected, class of channels. Examples from several continents cover a wide range of spatial scales, from large river basins down to reach scales and individual sites. This state-of-the-art survey of bedrock river channels will interest hydrologists, geomorphologists, and civil and environmental engineers, as well as anyone concerned with high-gradient fluvial channels with part of the boundary in rock."--BOOK JACKET.
