    Active Tectonics and Alluvial Rivers by Stanley A. Schumm,Stanley Alfred Schumm,Jean F. Dumont,John M. Holbrook Book Resume: Describes how rivers respond to active tectonics for graduate students, consultants and academic researchers. Ollier () devotes a chapter to drainage patterns, rivers and tectonics, and he discusses the effects of warping and faulting on drainage systems, but nothing on river morphology. However, recently Keller and Pinter () have published a book on active tectonics, and they devote a chapter to rivers and drainage network response to deformation.

Active Tectonics and Rivers. Introduction. Fluvial Responses to Tectonic Modification. Models of Tectonic Adjustment. 6. Active Tectonics and Coastlines. Introduction. Paleoseismology (the study of "ancient" earthquakes) has become an important component of seismic risk analysis, which is mandated for nuclear power plants, dams, waste repositories, and other critical structures. This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. It summarizes the development of the field from the s to the present, encompassing 5/5(1).

Active Tectonics and Alluvial Rivers The interactions between tectonic uplift, river erosion and alluvial deposition are fundamental processes which have acted to shape the landscape we see today. These processes are of course ongoing, and are important not only in.

Alluvial rivers are highly dynamic landforms, where channel geometry and river morphology are exceptionally sensitive to water discharge, sediment load and active tectonics (Leopold et al., Active Tectonics and Alluvial Rivers Stanley A.

An alluvial river is one in which the bed and banks are made up of mobile sediment and/or al rivers are self-formed, meaning that their channels are shaped by the magnitude and frequency of the floods that they experience, and the ability of these floods to erode, deposit, and transport this reason, alluvial rivers can assume a number of forms based on the properties of.
