Abstract:

Bank erosion, particularly when associated with vertical channel instability andor active meander migration, poses serious problems to river channel users and flood plain dwellers. Objectives of the proposed work were as follows 1 To evaluate potential for bank erosion 2 To undertake field testing of the existing bank erosion in a wide variety of river environments 3 To evaluate existing guidelines regarding their effectiveness in supporting field assessment of bank erosion by non-specialist personnel and 4 To further develop guidelines to produce an assessment system suitable for routine use nationwide by non-expert personnel.
