Anthropogenic changes to watersheds and rivers have been a dominant cause of adjustments in the geomorphology and sedimentology of fluvial systems. These changes range from hillslope hydrology, to sediment budgets, to channel and floodplain morphological responses, to sedimentary layers recorded in the stratigraphic record. These sessions will present original research on anthropogeomorphic changes and rates of changes to hillslope and channels as water and sediment delivery and conveyance systems. They will also include evidence, methods, and models used to demonstrate or simulate these effects. The emphasis will be on hydrologic or geomorphic changes over time scales ranging from prehistory to on-going processes.
