Tools in fluvial geomorphology by G. Mathias Kondolf( )

45 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) "If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." Fluvial Geomorphology, the study of riverine landforms and the processes that produce them, is a discipline of synthesis, with roots in geology, geography, and river engineering, and which draws upon allied fields of hydrology, chemistry, physics, ecology, and human and natural history. Thanks largely to these roots, the range of tools used in the field is exceptionally diverse, with most tools borrowed from these allied fields, and some tools developed within fluvial geomorphology. However, individual researchers and practitioners typically apply only tools with which they are already familiar, usually the methods used by their home discipline. This book presents a comprehensive review of the tools used in Fluvial Geomorphology, at a level suitable to guide selection of research method for the researcher or graduate student in fluvial geomorphology, or for the professional in other fields of river management. Tools in Fluvial Geomorphology focuses on geomorphological methods within which techniques are applied. The chapters are written by specialists in the field, and are oriented to providing guidance into how to approach problems and how to select appropriate tools to answer the questions posed. Because the choice of tool should follow from the question posed, this book presents tools in the context of geomorphological questions. This book: Covers five main types of geomorphological questions and their associated tools: historical framework; spatial framework; chemical, physical and biological methods; analysis of processes and forms; and framework for modeling future behavior. Includes case studies illustrating applications of the tools discussed. Includes chapters which cover: evolution of methods; guiding concepts; when to apply specific tools; advantages and limitation of the tools; sources of data; equipment and supplies needed; and examples of the application. Describes tools from a variety of sources: traditional geology and physical geography; remote sensing and GIS; and the application of concepts from other fields such as civil engineering, hydraulics and ecology. Focuses not only on the field/laboratory methods and techniques but also to key concepts and methods that are fundamental for approaching the applied problems. This handbook is essential for researchers and professional geomorphologists, hydrologists, geologists, ecologists, engineers and planners, and professional organisations. It is a useful supplementary textbook for upper level undergraduate and MSc courses in Fluvial Geomorphology and Catchment Management taught within Departments of Geography, Environmental Science and Geology, Ecology, Environmental Planning, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and allied fields
Fluvial remote sensing for science and management by Patrice Carbonneau( )

19 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an overview of progress in the general area of fluvial remote sensing with a specific focus on its potential contribution to river management. The book highlights a range of challenging issues by considering a range of spatial and temporal scales with perspectives from a variety of disciplines. The book starts with an overview of the technical progress leading to new management applications for a range of field contexts and spatial scales. Topics include colour imagery, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral imagery, video, photogrammetry and LiDAR. The book then discusses management applications such as targeted, network scale, planning, land-use change modelling at catchment scales, characterisation of channel reaches (riparian vegetation, geomorphic features) in both spatial and temporal dimensions, fish habitat assessment, flow measurement, monitoring river restoration and maintenance and, the appraisal of human perceptions of riverscapes

River restoration : political and socio-economical perspectives by Bertrand Morandi( )

8 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"River restoration has expanded exponentially in the last three decades, with increased investment by government agencies, private developers, and NGOs. The available literature -- both scholarly works and government guidance manuals -- has grown proportionately, but has been almost entirely about ecological, hydrological, and geomorphological aspects of restoration. Yet the primary issues faced by many restoration programs have more to do with legal, economic, and institutional barriers and public perception and acceptance, than with physical and ecological constraints (though these can be formidable as well). Diverse issues such as the installation of habitat structures and replanting along a small creek by a local group, or a major program to restore complex habitat, a more natural flow regime, and sediment supply to a river below a dam, require an understanding of the social dimensions of river restoration projects. For anyone funding, permitting, planning, designing, or building river restoration projects, a concise, up-to-date, clearly organized treatment of the critical socio-economic issues relevant to river restoration will be a very useful asset. Most people involved in restoration projects (ecologists, engineers, landscape architects, hydrologists) lack a strong background in the social sciences. Increasingly however, these professionals understand that they must consider social dimensions. This book will fill a critical gap in their libraries summarizing how social approaches can contribute to river restoration projects and policies. The aim of this book is to present and synthesize understanding from recent advances in social sciences related to river restoration. It will cover not only supposedly "intangible" social phenomena -- such as ethics, culture and justice -- but also very tangible practical aspects -- including policy, governance, project management, decision making and stakeholder interactions -- to give a complete picture of the sometimes complex interaction of issues in river restoration."--
Les forêts riveraines des cours d'eau : écologie, fonctions et gestion by Hervé Piégay( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage représente une synthèse des connaissances, qu'elles soient d'ordre fondamental, écologique, sociétal ou encore appliqué. L'un des objectifs est de faire le lien entre la recherche fondamentale et la gestion de l'eau et des forêts, de prouver par l'exemple que l'analyse collective d'une question environnementale est une condition nécessaire sinon suffisante pour appliquer le concept de développement durable. Il s'agit donc d'un ouvrage interdisciplinaire, s'appuyant sur des équipes scientifiques travaillant en France dans ce domaine, unique synthèse de langue française abordant la question des milieux rivulaires, de leur intérêt et de leur gestion.

L'eau à découvert by Luc Abbadie( )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indispensable à la régulation du climat, au développement de la vie sur Terre, au maintien des écosystèmes, aux populations, au développement de l'agriculture, de l'industrie comme à la production d'énergie, l'eau est un élément vital. Il convient donc, dans un contexte de changement global, d'analyser dans toute sa diversité la place et le rôle de l'eau et de se donner ainsi les moyens de mieux la préserver. Autour de cet enjeu qui engage toute l'humanité, Agathe Euzen, Catherine Jeandel et Rémy Mosseri ont réuni près de cent cinquante contributions, visant à apporter un éclairage sur chacun des domaines et des approches que couvre cette thématique. Quelle est l'origine de l'eau? Son rapport avec l'apparition de la vie? Quel rôle a-t-elle joué dans l'histoire de la planète et dans le développement de la vie végétale, animale et humaine? Quel est son cycle? Quelles sont ses propriétés chimiques? Comment les sociétés se sont-elles emparées de cet élément précieux? Allons-nous manquer d'eau? L'eau est-elle source de conflits? Comment l'eau est-elle gérée? Comment recycle-t-on une eau polluée? Quels sont les risques pour la santé mondiale? Quels sont les grands enjeux liés à l'eau au xxie siècle? Comprendre et proposer des solutions à ces défis majeurs est l'intention de cet ouvrage
L'énergie à découvert by Nathalie Alazard-Toux( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'énergie est devenue une question vitale pour les sociétés, le citoyen, l'humanité tout entière. Sujet scientifique, économique, politique et écologique majeur, elle suscite des débats, parfois violents, sur les choix à faire aujourd'hui et leurs conséquences pour l'avenir des hommes et de la planète. Mais, alors que se tient le grand débat national sur la transition énergétique, comment se forger une opinion objective sans connaître les données scientifiques les plus complètes sur les potentiels et les limites de chaque source d'énergie? Ce livre les met enfin à la disposition du public. L'énergie, qu'est-ce que c'est? Quelles sont les grandes lois physiques qui la gouvernent? Comment la produire, la transporter, la stocker? Le solaire, la biomasse, l'éolien, l'hydraulique sont-ils des solutions alternatives suffisantes? Et quelle part leur réserver à l'avenir? Les nombreux articles de ce livre (près de 130) proposent au citoyen des outils pour se faire une opinion face à ces questions. Physiciens, chimistes, biologistes, géophysiciens, environnementalistes, géographes, économistes, y précisent, chiffres et schémas à l'appui, la place respective des énergies fossiles, du nucléaire et des énergies renouvelables. Au-delà, ils expliquent quelles sont les perspectives offertes par la science sur le mix énergétique, le problème du stockage, l'amélioration de nos usages de l'énergie, ses impacts environnementaux et sanitaires

Étude et gestion de la dynamique sédimentaire d'un tronçon fluvial à l'aval d'un barrage : le cas de la basse vallée de l'Ain by Anne-Julia Rollet( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our ability to evaluate the impacts of dams on river channels is limited by a lack of adequate field observations and natural variability between river systems. Although understood in a qualitative sense, quantitative data has been difficult to collect and the complexity of the problem has meant that the application of predictive models of channel evolution remains a delicate process As a first step, we identified the impacts that the dams and other anthropomorphic changes have had on both the control variables and the morphology of the Ain River. As a second step, we tried to understand a number of relevant processes using three approaches : a sedimentary budget, direct measurement of sediment transport, and the calculation of transport capacity from available hydraulic relations. These results were used as a basis to outline a sustainable management plan for the sedimentary and ecological dynamics of the Ain River

Contrôles naturels et anthropiques de la structure et de la dynamique des forêts riveraines : exemples de différents hydrosystèmes rhodaniens by Simon Dufour( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this thesis, we analyse, quantitatively, the impact of the hydro-morphological evolution of the channel on water and sediments fluxes, and thus on floodplain forests of Rhodanian hydrosystems. At the landscape scale, we show that abandonment of forestry and pastoral practices can lead to an increase in floodplain vegetation cover. At the individual scale, the altitude of a site, modifying by bed mobility, is the most important control on the degree of hydrological connection. At the community level, we demonstrate that ecological conditions are also influenced by the geometrical evolution of the bed: degradation; embankment. The examples developed constitute a significant argument for promoting a consistent management strategy for fluvial systems and floodplain forests and to discuss the concepts of physical connection, human pressures, and riparian path

Reconstitution sédimentologique des extrêmes hydrologiques au cours du dernier millénaire dans les Alpes françaises : Relations avec les changements climatiques by Bruno Wilhelm( )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An increase of the intensity of hydrological extremes is expected in the current context of the global warming. However, the lack of observations of torrential events and measurements of precipitation at high elevation areas does not allow supporting this theory. Past flood evolutions can be recorded in lake sediments and allow to explore the evolution of such events and the relationships to past climatic changes. This work aims at reconstructing the past evolution of flood frequency and intensity based on the study of sediment sequences of high elevation lakes of the French Alps. To assess the role of the temperature on this evolution, our study focused over the last millennium which includes thermal-contrasted periods such as the warm Medieval Climate Anomaly and the cold Little Ice Age. Studied sites were selected along a north-south transect to investigate the regional variability of flood evolution in response to the same context of past climatic changes. High-resolution sedimentological and geochemical analyses allowed to identify a large number of flood deposits, distinguish deposits resulting from floods from gravity processes and to assess a reliable flood intensity proxy. Some distinct dating methods were finally used to reduce age uncertainties on the age-depth relationships. An increase of the flood frequency at a multi-secular time-scale appeared over the entire French Alps during the Little Ice Age. However at a multi-decennial time-scale flood frequencies evolved differently between the north and the south of the French Alps. Maxima of flood frequency appear during the warmer periods in the northern Alps while maxima of flood frequency appear during negative phases of the North Atlantic Oscillations. Finally the most extreme events occurred during the warmer periods in the northern Alps while they occur during the Little Ice Age in the southern ones. Those results suggest thus distinct regional effects of the global warming on extreme flood events and intense precipitations and, especially, an increase of flood hazard in the northern French Alps owing to an increase of flood intensity with the warming context
