Describes and quantifies the movement and storage of sediment in rivers with gravel-bed material, based upon scientific and engineering principles. Papers based on theory and experiment are interspersed with case studies. Until recently, gravel-bed rivers have been under-researched, when compared with sand-bed rivers. There is a heightened interest in these rivers now, due to pressure from water resources, forestry and recreational development in upland areas.
