This book is intended to complement the author's 1996 book qThe geology of fluvial depositsq, not to replace it. The book summarizes methods of mapping and interpretation of fluvial depositional systems, with a detailed treatment of the tectonic, climatic and eustatic controls on fluvial depositional processes. It focuses on the preserved, ancient depositional record and emphasizes large-scale (basin-scale) depositional processes. Tectonic and climatic controls of fluvial sedimentation and the effects of base-level change on sequence architecture are discussed. Profusely illustrated and with an extensive reference to the recent literature, this book will be welcomed by the student and professional geologist alike.Channel morphology changes downstream in response to changes in valley slope, sediment load, bank materials, climate, or tectonic regime (e.g., see ... The value of these diagrams is that they place a basic geological problem in a Fig.
