Welcome to the AUDRI website

This is the completely rewritten version of the website: new layout, all sections rewritten to improve clarity, many more images, greatly improved navigation, new content. A primary aim is to make more obvious what is inside - so each major section has a much more detailed index page, and it is easier to jump into sub-sections.

Look out for the new Topic Thread navigation (top left and top right) to guide you through longer sections.

Look in Reservoirs and Analogues section for a guide to conceptual and numerical reservoir modelling.

Tell us what you think, share ideas or ask questions, through the Feedback section.

It is a big mistake to think that rain falls rarely in drylands - sometimes rain is so intense it causes immense damage. The key point is that evaporation rates far exceed rainfall, so the flow in rivers DECREASES downstream.

Aeolian sediments do not contain significant amounts of clay - that is what we get told, yes? But soil processes can add large amounts of clay, and obscure the primary texture, and aeolian settings can thus get missed

Vegetation lining river banks makes them thousands of times stronger and can cause rivers to meander or anastomose even when clay is in short supply.
