Abstract:

The intention of this article is to identify the ways in which ideas about space and time are manifest in river bank erosion research, thus linking abstract theoretical discussion with the ‘practice’ of geomorphological research. Bank erosion research to date has involved a range of space- and time-scales, different perspectives resulting from these views. Scale linkage via mathematical translation has been attempted in some cases, but studies are often contextualized through loosely hierarchical ideas. The application of hierarchy theory and notions of space–time are considered, concluding with the identification of questions that might usefully be considered in future research

Keywords: hierarchy; river bank erosion; scale; space; space–time; time
