Abstract

This paper addresses the role that fluvial geomorphology might play in the management of sediment-related river maintenance in the U.K. A methodology for conducting a geomorphological survey, or fluvial audit, is presented, which synthesizes historical data on the catchment land-use and channel network, with contemporary morphological maps to present a statement of the location and type of sediment supply, transport and storage within the river basin under scrutinity. Case studies from two catchments are explored: the River Sence, a fine sediment system, and the Shelf Brook, a coarse sediment system
