In this subject students gain in-depth knowledge about flow hydrology, hydraulic behaviour, landforms and sedimentary deposits of rivers. Emphasis is given to flood hydrology, the mechanics of river flow, floodplain formation by meandering rivers, the effects of post-European settlement on the flow regime of rivers in the Murray-Darling Basin and the management of degraded rivers. On completion, students will be able to critically apply the conceptual and practical frameworks that underpin the principles of river management .
