The article deals with new orientation and methodological approaches recently dominating in the field of fluvial geomorphology. The authors, based on theoretical and methodological findings of older and recent studies define the riverine landscape and its geomorphic base - channel-floodplain geosystems, explain their hierarchical structure and briefly outline the main features of approaches of its assessment and survey strategy.
