Fluvial geomorphology and paleofloods in arid central Australia
This thesis examines the fluvial geomorphology of the Todd River(9,300 km2) in arid central Australia. It describes the morphology, motphostratigraphy, dimentary characteristics and chronology of the modern flood plain and paleoflood complexes, and discusses the geomorphic effects of high magnitude floods and the subsequent recovery and adjustment of the river.
