H087:
Morphological Evolution of Large Rivers in the Anthropocene





Session ID#: 25442

Session Description:
Continental-scale rivers are capable of transporting vast amounts of water and sediment, shaping their channels, floodplains, and deltas.  This session is intended to bring together researchers studying these large rivers to share insights, particularly about the movement of sediment from source to sink.  We welcome studies of changing hydrologic and sediment regimes (both natural and human-induced), human influences and engineering of these systems, numerical and physical models, and discussions of novel monitoring techniques unique to large rivers.
