Braided rivers form some of the world's most dynamic and varied alluvial environments. They present issues in relation to flood control, irrigation, habitat protection and river regulation; and their deposits act as important aquifiers and hydrocarbon reservoirs giving them a key role in resource management.This important book brings together eighteen cutting-edge research papers first presented at the Second International Conference on Braided Rivers. The conference discussed the latest research on the dynamics, deposits and ecology of these rivers. The papers in this book include discussions of the morphology of braided rivers and aspects of their sediment transport, depositional models, numerical modelling, engineering applications, system scale understanding, aspects of bank protection and the sustainable management of braided rivers and their ecology.The study of braided rivers is of interest to a wide range of geomorphologists, earth scientists, engineers and ecologists, and...
