About this book

This book reviews recent advances in geology and hydrodynamics in an effort to promote increased dialogue between sedimentary geologists, geomorphologists and hydrodynamicists. It focuses initially on hydrodynamics of turbulent flow, followed by two and three dimensional flow through straight and curved channels and flow over bed topography. It provides a consideration of initial motion, sediment transport and particle sorting and examines the potential for modeling these fluid sediment interactions.


Partial table of contents: Turbulent Flow in Rivers (J. Williams). The Fluid Dynamics of Small-scale Alluvial Bedforms (J. Best). Entrainment of Sediments from Deposits of Mixed Grain Sizes and Densities (P. Komar). Unsteady Transport of Sand Gravel Mixtures (R. Kuhnle). Modelling the Sediment Transport Process (A. Kelsey). Reconstructing Fluvial Channel Morphology from Sedimentary Sequences (C. Bristow). The Prediction and Modelling of Subsurface Fluvial Stratigraphy (C. North). Index.
