The geomorphology of Australia's fluvial systems: retrospect, perspect, and prospect

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Review of the study and geomorphology of Australia's fluvial systems by offering comment on the development, concerns and future of the subject. Development of the idea of a distinctive geomorphology of Australian fluvial systems that often contrast with Anglo-American observations is outlined and illustrated with particular reference to fluvial studies in south-east Australia. Themes in contemporary Australian fluvial research are discussed and include long-term landscape evolution, thresholds and riverine response to secular trends in climate. Consideration is also given to present deficiencies in research and to future priorities
