Post-European settlement disturbance response of rivers in Bega catchment, South Coast, NSW, Australia
Kirstie Fryirs
Human activities have altered river systems across most of our planet. Most rivers now operate under fundamentally different conditions to those that existed prior to human disturbance. Habitat loss brought about ...

Effects of 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles on Beach Sediment Transport
Timothy Austin
The use of 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles on coastal beaches is an activity that attracts considerable controversy amongst beach users. 4WD vehicles are currently permitted access to hundreds of beaches throughout ...

Development of Palimpsest Landscapes
Jasper Knight
In Physical Geography, a palimpsest landscape is one where, in any given region, the different landforms that make up the landscape are not of the same age, with some surface landforms being very young because they ...

Automatic extraction of flow paths from digital elevation models
Kyungrock Paik, Korea University
Once a raindrop falls on the ground, it flows downward. During this journey, the raindrop joins other raindrops and the mass/volume of the water increases, flowing along creeks, streams, and rivers. This is called ...

Influence of Dam Operations on Geomorphology and Sediment in the Colorado River corridor, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
Amy Draut
Large dams can greatly alter the physical and biological environments of rivers, by changing the magnitude and timing of flows, sediment transport, and water temperature. One of the most iconic landscapes in the ...

Eco-geomorphic response to river flow regulation downstream of Gavins Point Dam, Missouri River, South Dakota
Samantha Greene
Fluvial geomorphic processes interact with ecological processes along the terrestrial-aquatic interface to create a dynamic and complex environment. This environmental interface is often referred to as the ...

Does Moss Grow on A Rolling Stone? Assessing the Influence of Hydrologic Regime on Bed Load Transport and In-Stream Primary Producers in Steep Mountain Channels
Christopher Tennant
Conceptual Setup It has long been realized that earth systems are open, interconnected, and exhibit complex and emergent patterns as a result of natural forcings. As an example of such interactions, consider the ...

Restoration of the Elwha River system, Washington, through dam removal
Amy Draut
Most of the world's rivers contain one or more dams. On streams and rivers in the U.S. alone there are more than 75,000 dams large enough to store more than one year's runoff capacity, and many more dams ...
