The second edition of this acclaimed, accessible textbook brings the subject of sedimentation and erosion up-to-date, providing an excellent primer on both fundamental concepts of sediment-transport theory and methods for practical applications. The structure of the first edition is essentially unchanged, but all the chapters have been updated, with several chapters reworked and expanded significantly. Examples of the new additions include the concept of added mass, the Modified Einstein Procedure, sediment transport by size fractions, sediment transport of sediment mixtures, and new solutions to the Einstein Integrals. Many new examples and exercises have been added. Erosion and Sedimentation is an essential textbook on the topic for students in civil and environmental engineering and the geosciences, and also as a handbook for researchers and professionals in engineering, the geosciences and the water sciences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... [presents] the mechanics of sediment motion alongside those subjects in fluid mechanics that are fundamental to understanding sediment transport. The interweaving of the two subjects is carried out particularly well ... Each topic is covered clearly, with many carefully designed figures, examples, and exercises ... an excellent primer on both fundamental concepts of sediment-transport theory and methods for practical applications. ... well written, and nicely illustrated, and it will serve as either a handbook for workers in the field or a textbook for beginning students of the subject. Julien has done a truly admirable job in making ... [a] difficult subject much more accessible to beginning Earth scientists and engineers.' Jonathan Nelson, Journal of Hydraulic Engineering
'... clearly and concisely written, covers not only the theory but also measurement methods and also provides many worked examples. It will serve well its primary purpose as a textbook for post-graduate courses on erosion and sedimentation. ... thoroughly recommended.' Ian R. Calder, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences
'... an excellent and accessible treatment of the 'classic' engineering approach to erosion and sedimentation. ... a worthy primer for those requiring mastery over the essential technicalities of hydraulic analysis.' Nicholas J. Clifford, Progress in Physical Geography
'... this well-written text can be equally useful to undergraduates, graduates, geologists and geophysicists.' Christopher Kendall, The Leading Edge
'... well written and clearly set out ...' Gary Nichols, Geological Magazine

'I believe Julien's new edition is an improved and very useful reference text for research and teaching, although it lacks a strong foundation in some recent advances in sediment transport and fluvial geomorphology.' Michael B. Singer, Geological Magazine
