The special issue “Streambank Erosion: Monitoring, Modeling, and Management” presents recent progress and outlines new research directions through the compilation of 14 research articles that cover topics relevant to the monitoring, modeling, and management of this morphodynamic process. It contributes to our advancement and understanding of how monitoring campaigns can characterize the effect of external drivers, what the capabilities and limitations of numerical models are when predicting the response of the system, and what the effectiveness of different management practices is in order to prevent and mitigate streambank erosion and failure. The present editorial paper summarizes the main outcomes of the special issue, and further expands on some of the remaining challenges within the realm of monitoring, modeling, and managing streambank erosion and failure. First, it highlights the need to better understand the non-linear behavior of erosion rates with increasing applied boundary shear stress when predicting cohesive soil detachment, and accordingly, to adjust the computational procedures that are currently used to obtain erodibility parameters; and second, it emphasizes the need to incorporate process-based modeling of streambank erosion and failure in the design and assessment of stream restoration projects.
