The potential impacts of global change on fluvial systems and of their socioeconomic implications and flood hazards are also analyzed. Several of the largest and many of the most vulnerable rivers of the world are located in equatorial and monsoonal regions that are also some of the most active areas of fluvial sedimentation and erosion of the planet.This session has many presentations on Quaternary history, morphodynamics, hydro-geomorphology, hazards and management of tropical rivers from experts around the world.
