About this book

Proceedings of the Conference on Sediment Transport and Deposition by Particulate Gravity Currents hosted by the School of Earth Sciences at Leeds University in September 1998.

"[...] represents a valuable, interdisciplinary and international overview of the processes responsible for a group of flow types with major impacts on sediments, landforms, climate and people [...] I recommend it wholeheartedly to all who are studying particulate gravity current deposits or consequences."
– Geraint Owen, The Holocene, 13,2 (2003)
