Abstract: 
River Variability and Complexity presents a new approach to the understanding of river variability. It provides examples of river variability and explains the reasons for them, including fluvial response to human activities. Understanding the mechanisms of variability is important for geomorphologists, geologists, river engineers and sedimentologists as they attempt to interpret ancient fluvial deposits or anticipate river behavior at different locations and through time. This book provides an excellent background for graduates, researchers and professionals.br � A concise new approach to the understanding of river variability, building on the author's 40 years experience of river geomorphology br � Includes helpful reference tables and charts for the study of river characteristics (type) and behaviour (dynamics) br � Includes a discussion of the unintended consequences of human actions and develops a hypothesis regarding the effect of river characteristics on human behaviour
