A View of the River PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A View of the River free pdf We've straightened and dredged rivers, revetted and rerouted them, made massive efforts to control them, yet our actions have been less than successful. Too often, physical changes made to a river conflict with natural processes, resulting in - rather than alleviating - damage. Applying available knowledge on how rivers form and act could prevent such problems. Widely regarded as the most creative scholar in the field of river morphology, Luna Leopold presents a coherent description of the river, its shape, size, organisation, and action, along with a consistent theory that explains much of the observed character of channels.
