Summary

Image of Fluvial Geomorphology of Great Britain coverWater is the key to understanding the present physical landscape of Britain, which is fashioned largely by rain and rivers. The hydrological cycle is therefore of fundamental significance in the formation of the landscape. Fluvial geomorphology is the study of the development of river-made landforms, together with the associated fluvial processes.
 
There are many sites of scientific interest and value throughout the UK. The GCR sites described in this volume represent the wide range of fluvial landforms in Britain, and the accounts provide scientific descriptions of all the fluvial geomorphology sites selected for statutory nature conservation as SSSIs in Britain.
 
Starting with an outline of fluvial processes in Britain, the book is split into five major sections, each of which introduces a specific area of Britain, followed by detailed and illustrated descriptions of the sites included in those areas.
