About this book

Presents papers that examine the spectrum of fine sediment transport related science and engineering, including the basics and applications of flocculation, settling, deposition, and erosion, advanced numerical models used in engineering practice, and applications to mud flats and harbor siltation.

M. Gregoire ...Thanks to the peer reviewing of the papers and to a very clear style, this book of proceedings reaches a very high quality. I recommend this survey of case studies that explore the dynamics of suspended sediment to specialists in this area, as well as to those with a more general interest in coastal engineering and environment protection.
