River floodplains represent a most important component of the environment. They play a critical role in the routing and storage of floodwaters and frequently represent unique and valuable habitats. Increasingly, such areas are under pressure form human activity in a wide variety of forms. This volume seeks to outline recent major research developments that have taken place in the study of floodplain processes. The chapters represent the results of recent engineering, geomorphological, hydrological, planning and other specialist developments. The book will contribute to research not only within the specialist research disciplines outlined, but also in the more interdisciplinary challenges facing river management.
