Contents Notes
Perspectives in morphodynamics / Giovanni Seminara and Paolo Blondeaux -- Sediment entrainment and transport in complex flows / Jonathan M. Nelson [and others] -- Alluvial roughness in streams with dunes / Juan J. Fedele and Marcelo H. Garcia -- Use of numerical models in coastal hydrodynamics and morphology / Rolf Deigaard and Jorgen Fredsoe -- Process of occurrence, flow and deposition of viscous debris flow / Tamotsu Takahashi -- Transverse slope of bed and turbid-clear water interface of channelized turbidity currents flowing around bends / Gary Parker, Jasmin Imran and Carlos Pirmez -- Pattern formation in the nearshore / Rob Holman -- Long-term morphological prediction / Huib De Vriend -- River and tidal networks / Andrea Rinaldo, Stefano Lanzoni and Marco Marani. "This book provides a comprehensive overview of the recent developments on river, coastal and estuarine morphodynamics through a collection of review papers written by well-recognized experts in the field. Apart from geoscientists it is also of special interest to people involved in fluid mechanics who want to understand near wall turbulence and the effects of coherent structures on the mechanisms of sediment transport. Though aimed at geomorphologists and sedimentologists the terminology employed in the book makes it generally accessible to engineers, physicists and applied mathematicians at the postgraduate level. The contributions are illustrated with pictures of various morphodynamic natural patterns."--Jacket.
