Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines features of drainage and stream channel form and process on the mountainous volcanic island of Kadavu in the humid tropical South Pacific, and interprets the findings in relation to island environmental characteristics such as geology, regolith soils, topography, vegetation and climate. It is suggested that climatic factors control rates of fluvial processes on kadavu. Streamflow records show particularly that tropical storms can have a big impact. The effects od possible increasing numbers of cyclones in the South Pacific and human vegetation disturbance on Kadavu are considered
