Fluvial systems are highly dynamic and driven by the interactions among fluvial, hydrologic, ecological, and anthropogenic processes. Fluvial processes are the main surface process that moves sediment and flow constituents from uplands to oceans, dynamically shaping the landscape along the way. Improved understanding of fluvial dynamics is also vital to deal with socio-economic problems such as floods, water supply, sedimentation, and climate change, and to develop effective river management and restoration strategies. This session invites studies on fluvial forms and processes, and their interaction with society, across all spatial and temporal scales using a range of field, modeling, and remote sensing approaches in a variety of geographic settings.
