dc.description.abstract The Anthropocene represents the time since human impacts have become one of the major external forcings on natural processes. The present review provides a synthesis of studies on the Indian rivers at modern time scale. These studies highlight the significant impact of anthropogenic forcing on modern day river processes and behaviour. Various aspects of river systems at modern time scale and their possible future trajectories have been analysed. The integration of data from modern rivers and their archives are critical for defining sustainable stream management practices. Our synthesis suggests that the multi-disciplinary river studies at modern and historical time scales need to be pursued vigorously for securing the health and futures of the Indian rivers. en_US
