Special Publication 488

This volume brings together a number of papers from two workshops with the theme, ‘Rain, Rivers, Reservoirs’, which considered the dynamic changes to river systems as part of natural processes, particularly 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.

Jeremy Joseph

This is a good book, and the cross- and multi- disciplinary aims and aspects built into it work well. The boundaries (pseudo-boundaries?) induced by human thought modes, both between and within disciplines – i.e., between geology and engineering, and between the geosciences within geology – remain, of course, but are weakened by this publication, which is a useful move forward.
