Session Description: These three sessions in Fluvial Geomorphology are organized into sediment transport, river channels, and floodplains. The geographic focus is broad and includes a range of climatic and geologic settings, and the papers consider fluvial processes from the basin scale to channel-reach scale. The sessions are sponsored by the Geomorphology Specialty Group.
