Small as its title, this softcover booklet was intended for British students presumably at some point between high school and introductory college levels. The contents are arranged around data measurement and analysis, stream flow, sediments in river systems, river channels, and channel changes. There is an abridged glossary and index. References cited and suggested additional readings are mildly chauvinistic. The editors tell us the book is particularly suited for classes intending to become involved in field studies and projects.
