Regime theory has its empirical origins in the work done in the Indian sub-continent towards the end of the nineteenth century. The subject still owes much to its origins but major developments have taken place. The papers presented in this volume cover the latest ideas in the subject and include contributions from all parts of the world. As might be expected with a topic so firmly based on observations, there are significant contributions to the collection and analysis of field and laboratory data and also to the latest developments in empirical equations that are familiar aspects of regime theory. There are also important contributions to rational regime theory, where the theory is based on a description of the physical principle involved rather than on empirically derived equations. Channel form and meandering are also dealt with, together with the impact of graded sediments and the importance of bank stability. The book points the way to the future and will be of real value to all concerned with alluvial channels and river engineering.
