About this book

Environmental Sedimentology provides a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly expanding field which addresses the functioning and dynamics of contemporary sediment systems and how these systems respond to a range of both natural and anthropogenically-induced disturbance events. The book considers a variety of sedimentary environments: mountain and upland, fluvial, lacustrine, arid, urban, deltaic and estuarine, temperate coastal, tropical coastal, and continental shelf. Each chapter provides an overview of the main sources and dynamics of sediment production and accumulation, as well as exploring the impacts of a wide range of natural and man-made disturbance issues. Aspects of sediment management and remediation are also considered as are the potential impacts of on-going and future climatic and environmental change. Environmental Sedimentology is an invaluable text for advanced level undergraduates in earth science, environmental science and physical geography, and graduate students in the earth and environmental sciences with an interest in contemporary sediment systems.
