About this book

This book comprehensively addresses the complex physics affecting the movement and distribution of noncohesive sediments. This long-awaited translation and update of the 1991 original describes the results of field research of sand sediment dynamics in the coastal zones of the Black, Baltic, and Mediterranean Seas. Conveniently divided into three parts (modern concepts of nearshore hydrodynamics and elementary coastal processes; field research; and sediment transport), "Coastal Processes" is an easy-to-use reference guide for students, engineers, and researchers interested in the problems of sediment transport in the coastal zone. Chapters include: Nearshore Hydrodynamics; Elementary Hydrodynamic Transport Processes; Measuring Methods; Characterization of Testing Sites, Description of Experiments, and Observation Data; Study of Bed Microforms in the Nearshore Zone; Suspended Sediment in the Nearshore Zone; Longshore Sediment Transport; Cross-Shore Sediment Transport and Variability of the Underwater Slope Profile. Originally published in 1991 by the Russian Academy of Sciences, Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, the authors have updated and translated this text into English.
