Abstract

This paper integrates concepts derived from the literature to focus upon interactions between riparian vegetation and river channel dynamics in alpine glacier basins. Discussion of the nature and variability of discharge and sediment regimes of alpine glacier-fed rivers; downstream variations in the physical character of the river channel and corridor; consequent downstream variations in lateral processes; and regional variations in alpine glacier dynamics, lead to the proposal of a conceptual model of proglacial river channel–riparian vegetation interactions under changing climatic conditions.
