Key Features

* First book to consider management at the basin scale
* State-of-the-art review chapters
* New conceptual frameworks and approaches to management


Sediments are a natural part of aquatic systems and they are essential for the hydrological, geomorphological and ecological functioning of those systems. For society they are important and represent an important resource. However, due to the ever increasing use of river catchments, sediments need to be managed in a balanced and sustainable way. Sediment Management at the River Basin Scale reviews some of the key requirements and challenges facing scientists, river basin managers, and policy makers for sustainable sediment management at the river basin scale, and puts forward important recommendations.

This volume also available as part of a 4-volume set, ISBN 0444519599. Discount price for set purchase.
