Summary
"This volume brings together a number of papers from two workshops with the theme, 'Rain, rivers, reservoirs', which considered the dynamic changing climatic conditions. Bringing researchers from two different locations to Brazil and the UK allowed scientists to contribute to and promote, 'debate on current research...on how the planet works and how we can live sustainably on it'. This volume features a series of papers on the geoscience of modern and ancient rivers from across the world (Brazil, United States, Spain, Argentina, Canada, India and the UK), their evolution through time, their management, their deposits and their engineering, with both subsurface aquifers/hydrocarbon reservoirs (of Carboniferous, Triassic and Cretaceous age) and surface reservoirs considered."--Page 4 of cover
