This course covers advanced topics involved in the application of fluvial geomorphology to riverine habitat restoration and management. Some case studies are also discussed
1. Channel and floodplain response to environmental change
2. Short-term changes in channel stability
3. Environmental river flow hydraulics
4. Sediment erosion, transort, and deposition
5. Bank erosion and instability
6. Channel types and morphological calssification
7. Styles of channel change
8. River dynamics and channel maintenance
9. Geomorphic processes and riverine habitat
10. Geomorphic and habitat assessments
11. Habitat requirements
12. Riparian vegetation management
13. Habitat restoration strategies
14. Case studies
