Regulated Rivers: Research & Management
ISSN (printed): 0886-9375. ISSN (electronic): 1099-1646.
Regulated Rivers: Research and Management is an international journal dedicated to the promotion of interdisciplinary research concerned directly or indirectly with river management. River regulation is defined in the broadest sense to include the effects of major dams weirs canalization and water transfers. The journal is devoted to the rapid publication of scientific and technical papers on biological ecological engineering and geographical aspects relating to both the developed and developing world. Research focusing on reservoirs river basin development wetlands estuaries and the near-shore coastal zone etc. will also be accepted if the paper is set in the context of the regulated river system. Topics will include for example fishway design reservoir release strategies water quality problems channel erosion and sedimentation changes of aquatic flora and fauna impact assessment and modelling. In addition to original research papers regional and thematic reviews both invited and submitted will be included as will short communications and book reviews. Regional editorial support and a strict refereeing procedure ensure that Regulated Rivers: Research and Management achieves a high scientific standard and maintains both an interdisciplinary and truly international content. The subject matter includes the following topics: SCHEMES Water storage reservoirs hydro-power and flood-control dams regulation weirs canalization diversions and water-transfers. ENVIRONMENTS River channels impounded reaches riparian zones floodplains wetlands estuaries and deltas of polar temperate arid and tropical regions. IMPACTS Hydrological changes; Water-quality changes--physical geochemical and biochemical processes pollution; channel changes erosion and sedimentation; changes of flora and fauna (including bacteria algae macrophytes invertebrates fish birds and animals); and problems of health and disease. MANAGEMENT Impact assessment; environmental monitoring and modelling; integrated river-basin management; and conservation of running-water and wetland ecosystems. Reservoir release strategies and instream flow methodologies; water-quality control; biotic indices; pest and aquatic weed control; fisheries; and river engineering for ecological management channel maintenance and fishway design.
