River channel changes in the Rhone Delta (France) since the end of the Little Ice Age : geomorphological adjustment to hydroclimatic change and natural resource management

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Geomorphological adjustment in the Rhone catchment since the final stage of the Little Ice Age has been induced by hydroclimatic change and human disturbances. These adjustments are examined to highlight the response of 2 sand-bed distributary channels of the Rhone Delta. By using methods such as sedimentological evidence, historical sources, planimetric resurvey, repeated longitudinal and cross-profiling and hydraulic data, the geomorphological and hydraulic responses to channel changes are characterised and their consequences assessed
