About this book

Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters. "Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters" provides a quantitative understanding of the transport of sediments and hydrophobic contaminants. With an emphasis on fine-grained, cohesive sediments and mixtures of fine-grained and coarse-grained sediments, this book provides detailed descriptions of models for resuspension, erosion, deposition, and transport. Various applications of each model are presented. The text also focuses on flux mechanisms, the effects of finite rates, the impact of large-scale events, and determining parameters from laboratory experiments.

Contents

Introduction. General Properties of Sediments. Sediment Erosion. Flocculation, Settling, Deposition, and Consolidation. Hydrodynamic Modeling. Modeling Sediment Transport. The Sorption and Partitioning of Hydrophobic Organic Chemicals. Modeling the Transport and Fate of Hydrophobic Chemicals.
