Introduction to River Engineering Resources

This website provides engineers with a one-stop shop for river engineering resources. The website provides links to key resources for river engineering analysis and design. It is intended as a tool for (1) practitioners, (2) researchers, and (3) aspiring river engineers.

FOCUS

These resources focus on engineering contexts of hydrology, hydraulics, sediment transport and geomorphology. Physico-chemical, biological, and social resources are complied incidentially. Resources are selected based on their relevance to river engineering projects and frequency in practice. To narrow the number of resources, the scope is limited to topics (1) within the stream corridor and (2) no larger in scale than a river reach (e.g., no watershed analyses or river networks).

WHY

River Engineering is the study and practice of human intervention between water and the landscape. River engineering projects are critical to managing water resources to meet a wide range of environmental, social, and economic needs. Over the last couple centuries, the science and practice has advanced from the improved understanding of technical processes. Additionally, river engineering has evolved into an inherently multi-disciplinary field. To help river engineers navigate centuries of river engineering science and practice, this website provides references and access to key resources.

Some tips for using our tables:

The information you need, at your fingertips

SEARCHING THE WHOLE TABLE

The search bar at the top of the table will pull up results across the entire table, so you can search more widely by subject. 

SEARCHING BY COLUMN

The boxes at the top of each column will allow you to search within that column. In order to look for all the sources that fall within a certain column, type an “X” into the column’s search box. This will pull up any source indicated as having that attribute. 

SCROLLING

This table scrolls horizontally and vertically. Don’t miss out on all the attributes not presently visible–make sure you scroll!

CONSTANTLY GROWING

This table is a work in progress. If you are looking for a source we don’t currently have, or have a suggestion for an addition, get in touch!
