About this book

Originally published in 1983, this was the first comprehensive textbook of lake sedimentology. It describes the principles and processes determining how the sediments reflect and affect the character of lakes. From a multi-disciplinary perspective, it defines and discusses fundamental physical, chemical and biological sediment parameters. It covers the sedimentologic mechanisms in the lake water, on the lake bottom and within sediments. The book also stresses the role of sedimentology in lake management and control, with a special focus on nutrients and metals.
