About this book

Intended primarily for postgraduate students, this book covers transport of non-cohesive sediment by waves and current in- and outside the surf zone. The authors aim to describe the physical processes of sediment transport and how to represent them in mathematical models.

Media reviews
... the book presents an integrated and valuable work on the advanced mechanics of coastal hydrodynamics and sediment transport, well worth the attention of graduate students and professionals specializing in the field. Journal of Coastal Research "... the authors have managed to create an informative balance between theory, measurements and numerical modelling ... I fully recommend the book, which is published at a very reasonable price as Volume 3 of the Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering by World Scientific. The book will stand alone but if some readers feel that it needs a mate on the book shelf, the best companion may be Volume 4 in the same series, titled Coastal Bottom Boundary Layers and Sediment Transport by P Nielsen." International Journal of Marine Geology, Geochemistry and Geophysics "The book is very well-written. Basic ideas are outlined in a straightforward manner and more complex topics are dealt with in the form of worked examples. At no point is the mathematics beyond anyone with a first degree in engineering but familiarity with basic hydraulics and wave mechanics would be an advantage. Both authors have in the past made many major contributions to this field and it is, consequently, hardly surprising that there is a strong emphasis on North-European research literature." J. Fluid Mech. "... this is a very interesting text that will assist a number of young scientists dealing with sediment transport ... The material is explained quite clearly and the approach is quite analytical, making this text most valubale to coastal engineers and scientists ... This book is perfectly suited to all graduate students and scientists interested in coastal engineering. It is the kind of digest that will bring readers back to the book long after graduation."
