About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the recent developments in 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 transports. 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 well-illustrated with splendid pictures of various morphodynamic natural patterns.


Perspectives in Morphodynamics.- Sediment Entrainment and Transport in Complex Flows.- Alluvial Roughness in Streams with Dunes: A Boundary-Layer Approach.- The Use of Numerical Models in Coastal Hydrodynamics and Morphology.- Process of Occurrence, Flow and Deposition of Viscous Debris Flow.- Transverse Slope of Bed and Turbid-Clear Water Interface of Channelized Turbidity Currents Flowing Around Bends.- Pattern Formation in the Nearshore.- Long-Term Morphological Prediction.- River and Tidal Networks.
