A review of assessment methods for river hydromorphology
Numerous hydromorphological assessment methods have been developed in different countries during recent decades, with notable differences in their aims, scales, and approaches. Although these methods are increasingly ...
The role of large wood in retaining fine sediment, organic matter and plant propagules in a small, single-thread forest river
This paper investigates associations among large wood accumulations, retained sediment, and organic matter and the establishment of a viable propagule bank within a forested reach of a lowland river, the Highland Water, ...
A conceptual model of vegetation-hydrogeomorphology interactions within river corridors
(JOHN WILEY & SONS LTD, 2015-08-03)
We propose a conceptual model of vegetation-hydrogeomorphology interactions and feedbacks within river corridors (i.e. river channels and their floodplains) that builds on previous similar hydrogeomorphologically-centred ...
‘I like the sound of falling water, it’s calming’: engineering sensory experiences through landscape architecture
(SAGE Publications, 2017-07-01)
© 2017, © The Author(s) 2017. Post-industrial wastelands have been given increased attention by landscape architects since the late 1990s. Through their redesign, landscape architects argue that the sensory qualities of ...
Sex in the digital city: location-based dating apps and queer urban life
(Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2017-06-23)
It is well established that digital technology and code mediate bodies in space. The collapse of any supposed physical/digital divide has been amply documented to the extent that everyday life is now widely theorised in ...
Numerical modelling of glacial lake outburst floods using physically based dam-breach models
© Author(s) 2015. The instability of moraine-dammed proglacial lakes creates the potential for catastrophic glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) in high-mountain regions. In this research, we use a unique combination of ...
Introduction crystallising the social condenser

Wood mitigates the effect of hydropeaking scour on periphyton biomass and nutritional quality in semi-natural flume simulations
© 2016 Springer International PublishingThe daily fluctuating discharge from hydroelectric power plants, known as hydropeaking, has been shown to cause catastrophic drift in aquatic insect communities and limit secondary ...
