Call for Submissions

The ways in which we observe and conceptualize rivers has been changing rapidly over the past 50 years due to both advances in techniques (mapping and modeling habitat with high resolution optical imagery, mapping flood inundation with LiDAR, rapid accurate surveying using total station, etc) and theories (river continuum concept, discontinuity, natural flow regime, disturbance dynamics, etc.) in river processes. These views are important in the advancement of the monitoring and management of rivers. This illustrated paper session will explore theoretical and applied river research across the spectrum from data acquisition and processing to regulation and management of river systems. Topics could include but are not limited to:

Remote Sensing and River Systems
Stream Restoration
River and Vegetation Interactions
Sediment Transport
River Hydrological Processes
Climate Changes and River Systems
Human Impacts on Rivers
Stream Impoundments and Regulation
Community Based Watershed Management
