Summarises recent work in the Finke bedrock gorge, one of central Australia's larger and most spectacular river systems. The Finke has the best-explored slackwater deposit sequence on the continent. It therefore offers some insights on the magnitude and frequency of catastrophic floods and how they are expressed in the landscape. -from Authors
