Abstract

This paper describes fundamental differences between river engineering and fluvial geomorphology, reviews a few time-related geomorphic concepts, and argues for an increased use of historical geomorphology in river management. It finishes with examples of how underestimates of the magnitude of natural phenomena over time have led to erroneous judgements about flood control and channel geomorphic conditions in northern California
