In this issue, Korup et al. describe how rockslides in the Himalaya, Tien Shan, and New Zealand Southern Alps force channel alluviation and relocation, and inhibit fluvial incision into bedrock. Taylor and Kite develop a conceptual model postulating that valley-width morphometry and style of hillslope delivery are the primary factors controlling the efficiency of sediment transport along mountain rivers in the central Appalachachians of USA. In the Italian Alps, Comiti et al. find that wood inputs result mainly from slope instabilities adjacent to the channels. Using GIS and DEM analysis, Lin, Hayakawa and Oguchi study the knickzones. Watterson and Jones describe interactions among floods, debris flows, and roads in western Oregon. Beechie et al. quantify rates of floodplain disturbance in relation to stream type in the Pacific Northwest. Price, Leigh and Webb study the impacted streams in the U.S. Blue Ridge Mountains
