Abstract:

Understanding of the character of urban environments, which have been increasinglyembraced by geomorphological research in the last four decades, has progressed to the way inwhich they are currently perceived. For fluvial geomorphology it is necessary to understand thepalimpsest inherited from long-term evolution under pre-urban conditions. This includes understandingthe way urban hazards arise, appreciating the diverse consequences of short-term landform changes influenced by human activity, and contemplating the nature and implications ofmanagement methods in relation to future global changes including those instigated by changedurban hazards.

Keywords: urban geomorphology, palimpsest, urban channel changes, urban management methods, global change

Abstract:

Where physical geography might go in the next fifty years can be contemplated froma review of how river channels have been studied in the last fifty years. The river landscape is abasis for introducing seven ways in which river landscapes have been studied and researched,culminating in an eighth holistic phase. Conclusions from studies of impacts of human activityprovide a basis for suggesting that physical geographers should be more concerned with the designof river landscapes and ways in which this might be achieved are suggested.

Keywords: river channels, river landscapes, river channel changes, landscape design, future physical geography
