Detail

The specific objectives of this handbook are to synthesise the latest research on groundwater/surface water interactions and hyporheic zone processes for the science end-user community, particularly river or catchment managers and to transfer knowledge from the research base to the science end-user community. It is also a ‘how to’, or ‘what to think about’ handbook to encourage the use of sound science in river management decisions which provides a teaching aid for post-graduate level students.
