River restoration projects are designed to recreate functional
characteristics within a context of physical stability. They tend
to focus on the development and application of geomorphic
principles for river restoration design. Due to different models
obtaining different results on the same problem, incomplete or
absent data, and climatic/social/cultural changes, the designers
and managers of such projects frequently face high levels of
uncertainty. This book will provide a systematic overview of the
issues involved in minimizing and coping with uncertainty in river
restoration projects. A series of thematic sections will be used to
define the various sources of uncertainty in restoration projects
and how these show at different points in the life cycle (design,
construction and post construction phases) of restoration projects.
The structure of the book will offer a rational theoretical
analysis of the problem while providing practical guidance in
managing the different sources of uncertainty. A wide range of case
studies will be included from Europe, North America and
