Sediment transport monitoring, modeling and management / Abdul A. Khan and Weiming Wu editors. New York : Nova Publishers, c2013. -- 390 p. (Earth Sciences in the 21st Century)
This book provides a broad perspective of sediment transport in rivers, reservoirs, estuaries, and coastal areas. It deals with the related fundamentals of sediment transport, computational modeling of cohesive and non-cohesive sediments transport, and sedimentation engineering management. Topics include river morphological changes after dam removal, local scour and its monitoring, marsh edge erosion, turbidity dynamics in a bay surrounded by marshes, effects of harbor construction on hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes in a coastal area, and impact of climate change on sediment yield from a watershed, are discussed. The breath of the topics covered will be of interest to researchers and practicing engineers alike. This book contains twelve chapters. (Imprint: Nova). © 2013 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
