Abstract

Braided river deposits form some of the largest and most valuable aquifers, hydrocarbon reservoirs, placers and aggregate deposits. An understanding of the dynamics and deposits of braided rivers holds many key economic applications. This book, comprising 23 contributions (abstracted separately), presents the first interdisciplinary approach to the study of braided rivers, with comprehensive views on their dynamics, sedimentation and economic applications, with examples drawn from modern and ancient braided rivers. -from Publisher
