Transported Sediments: Mechanics and Geo-Environmental Impact (Hardback)Panagiotis D. Scarlatos (author)
- Coming soon
This book covers the basics of transported sediments of all particle sizes and their associated impact on rivers, estuaries, alluvial fans, and coastal environments.
It provides an introductory but comprehensive coverage of the main aspects of sediment transport including: classification and properties, incipient motion, bed formation, estimates of bed-load, suspended and total sediment loads, cohesive sediment transport, geomorphology and fluvial processes, sediment sampling, sediment quality criteria, littoral transport and beach erosion, hyper-concentrated flows, aeolian transport, and sediment control structures.
It is written for upper level undergraduate and graduate students; civil, coastal and environmental engineers; and geologists and hydrogeologists. Emphasis is given to applications rather than theory or derivations of formulas. It is extensively supported by PowerPoint presentations, suggested learning assignment projects/quizzes and learning assessment rubrics for adopting course instructors.
