Interpretive Summary: Streambank erosion is detrimental to the stability and function of streams and can have severe economic and safety consequences on human riparian development. This article introduces a special collection of six studies that advance research on streambank erosion monitoring, streambank erodibility characterization, and streambank erosion loading. We also highlight some critical needs for future streambank erosion research.

Technical Abstract: High rates of streambank erosion are detrimental to the stability and function of streams. This collection brought together six studies that represent key advances in streambank erosion research. Current research directions on streambank erosion, erodibility characterization, and sediment loading are presented. Future research directions and challenges related to high-frequency data collection and modeling are discussed.
