Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Hydrology
  • Drainage basin

Hervé Piégay spends much of his time researching Hydrology, Floodplain, Fluvial, Riparian zone and Drainage basin. His work deals with themes such as Aggradation, Sediment, Environmental resource management, Vegetation and Large woody debris, which intersect with Hydrology. Hervé Piégay has included themes like Channel, Channel pattern, Alluvium and Tributary in his Floodplain study.

His Channel research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Debris, River continuum concept and Spatial variability. The study incorporates disciplines such as Land use, land-use change and forestry, Field, STREAMS and Geographic information system in addition to Fluvial. His studies in Riparian zone integrate themes in fields like Cartography, Scale, Communication channel and Remote sensing.

His most cited work include:

  • Large wood and fluvial processes (411 citations)
  • From the myth of a lost paradise to targeted river restoration: forget natural references and focus on human benefits (296 citations)
  • Causes of 20th century channel narrowing in mountain and piedmont rivers of southeastern France (245 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Hydrology, Floodplain, Channel, Fluvial and Riparian zone. Hervé Piégay combines subjects such as Bed load, Sediment and Vegetation with his study of Hydrology. His Floodplain research incorporates themes from Aggradation, Habitat, Communication channel, Tributary and Sedimentation.

The concepts of his Channel study are interwoven with issues in Erosion, Bank erosion and Large woody debris. His Fluvial research focuses on subjects like Environmental resource management, which are linked to Sustainable management. His Riparian zone study results in a more complete grasp of Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (50.28%)
  • Floodplain (17.90%)
  • Channel (15.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Hydrology (50.28%)
  • Fluvial (14.77%)
  • Flood myth (8.24%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Hervé Piégay spends much of his time researching Hydrology, Fluvial, Flood myth, Sediment and Bed load. Hervé Piégay interconnects Sedimentation and Riparian zone in the investigation of issues within Hydrology. His research in Riparian zone intersects with topics in Vegetation and Tributary.

His study in Fluvial is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both River ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Sedimentary depositional environment, Historical maps and Remote sensing. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Flood myth, Hydrograph is strongly linked to Watershed. His Sediment research integrates issues from Earth science, Aquatic ecosystem and Hydropower.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Natural Wood Regime in Rivers (30 citations)
  • Use of airborne LiDAR and historical aerial photos for characterising the history of braided river floodplain morphology and vegetation responses (26 citations)
  • What do you mean, ‘resilient geomorphic systems’? (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Hydrology
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Hydrology, Channel, Flood myth, Environmental resource management and Sediment. His Hydrology study incorporates themes from Bed load and Riparian zone. His Riparian zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vegetation and Bank erosion.

The Channel study combines topics in areas such as Stream power, Tributary and German. His research integrates issues of Floodplain and Communication channel in his study of Sediment. His Floodplain research focuses on Lidar and how it relates to Fluvial.
