This paper presents a detailed overview of river meandering research, particularly focusing on the advances in the process-based understanding of meander morphodynamics. It also discusses the standing challenges in addressing the dynamics of real meandering rivers and their floodplain patterns and processes, and potential future directions in river meandering research. The paper advocates the crucial need for bridging theoretical modeling with field- and laboratory-based research in order to inform accurate assessments of river-hazard risks and facilitate ecologically sound river-management and restoration practices with the aim of supporting healthy ecosystems
