Item description for The Fluvial System by Stanley A. Schumm...

Originally published in 1977, this is a classic of the geomorphology literature.

Erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment within river catchments concern a wide range of earth scientists and profoundly affect land management. Upland soil removal engages the attention of soil conservationists, hydraulic engineers deal with fluvial sediment transport and river channel morphology, and patterns of sediment deposition in riverine and coastal lowlands affect navigability, the habitability of valley floors and the distribution of groundwater and minerals.

The author argues persuasively that fluvial geomorphology, sedimentology and stratigraphy provide insights into each of these components of the river basin.

The best Fluvial Geomorph book around...  Dec 26, 2002
I have read alot of books on this subject and this is still one of the leaders in having all of the info that you want in one book. All topics are covered and in such detail!!! It is such a valuble tool that someone should republish it for students now.
Very good overview of fluvial processes and geomorpholoy  Aug 4, 1997
Designed as a companion for his college course on the subject. Schumm clearly explains the concepts and theories behind fluvial geomorphology. This book should be required reading for all students and practicioners of fluvial sequence stratigraphy. CJ
