Aims & Scope

An important function of any large international organisation representing the research, educational and practical components of its wide and varied membership is to disseminate the best elements of its discipline through learned works, specialised research publications and timely reviews. IAHR is particularly well-served in this regard by its flagship journals and the extensive and wide body of substantive historical and reflective books that have been published through its auspices over the years. The IAHR Book Series is an initiative of IAHR, in partnership with CRC Press/Balkema-Taylor & Francis Group, aimed at presenting the state-of-the-art in themes relating to all areas of hydro-environment engineering and research.

The Book Series will assist researchers and professionals working in research and practice by bridging the knowledge gap and by improving knowledge transfer among groups involved in research, education and development. This Book Series includes Design Manuals and Monographs. The Design Manuals contain practical works, theory applied to practice based on multi-authors' work; the Monographs cover reference works, theoretical and state of the art works.

  • Fluvial Processes

    Second Edition

    By Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin

    A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface so as to form ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel as a whole so as to create meandering or braiding patterns. One can say that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of…
