About the Author

John Bridge is a Professor of Geological Sciences in the State University of New York at Binghamton, where he teaches and undertakes research in earth surface processes and sedimentology.


"...a welcome addition to the smaller number of advanced texts on the subject. It covers an area of Earth Science that is of interest to a wide range of practitioners, and in which much new research has been published on a number of themes. The book is an excellent review of this work at a level that will be informtive and stimulating to research workers in a number of disciplines." W A Mitchell, University of Durham, Geoscientist, January 2004 " excellent reference volume for anyone working on present day or ancient river material..." The Open University Geological Society Journal, May 2004 "...a first-class resource for both researchers and interested graduate students in geology and geography." Journal of Quaternary Science, September 2004 "...the material is very well presented, extremely well illustrated and very well suited to the intended audience. What the text does so well is a comprehensive integration of gemorphologic and engineering approaches...This text should be a must for all itnerested in multi-disciplinary analyses of rivers, and fluvial deposits." Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, August 2005 "...this book represents a significant and distinctive contribution to the specialist literature on sedimentology, river form and process in modern and ancient rivers. It will aid the interpretation of sediments in the context of river and floodplain development for the advanced student and academic." The Holocene, June 2006
