Fluvial Geomorphology of Great Britain (Geological Conservation Review Series No. 13) 1997


Volume 13 of the Geological Conservation Review series, Fluvial Geomorphology of Great Britain, is the most up-to-date summary of fluvial sites in Britain, and will form an invaluable resource for all those interested in fluvial processes, from conservation and environmental specialists to managers of rivers and river channels.

There are many sites of scientific interest and value throughout the UK. The GCR sites described in this volume represent the wide range of fluvial landforms in Britain, and the accounts provide scientific descriptions of all the fluvial geomorphology sites selected for statutory nature conservation as SSSIs in Britain. Starting with an outline of fluvial processes in Britain, the book is split into five major sections, each of which introduces a specific area of Britain, followed by detailed and illustrated descriptions of the sites included in those areas.

The contents of the volume include:

  • Prelims – including an introduction to the Geological Conservation Review (GCR) and the list of sites discussed in the volume.
  • Chapter 1 – An introduction to the fluvial geomorphology of Britain
  • Chapter 2 – Fluvial geomorphology of Scotland
  • Chapter 3 – Fluvial geomorphology of Wales
  • Chapter 4 – Fluvial geomorphology of north-west England
  • Chapter 5 – Fluvial geomorphology of north-east England
  • Chapter 6 – Fluvial geomorphology of central and southern England
  • References, Glossary and Index
