Fluvial geomorphology is how rivers shape the world around us. At its core, it examines the intricate interplay between sediment, water, and vegetation throughout an entire river catchment. By understanding the complex processes in a river system, we can gain insight into how it might behave in the future, particularly in the face of changing conditions like climate change.
At Tonkin + Taylor, we have a team of expert fluvial geomorphologists with proven technical capability and project experience.
Our fluvial geomorphologists work closely with water engineers, river managers, ecologists, freshwater scientists, landscape architects, and geotechnical engineers to provide our clients with holistic, long-term solutions.
