About this book

This is the first interdisciplinary book on the mobilization of nutrients and pollutants in the water phase due to hydrodynamic processes. In its ten chapters, a broad set of practical process knowledge is presented, comprising simulation techniques, laboratory and in-situ studies on the interaction between biological, chemical and hydrodynamic factors as well as models, for solving combined quality and quantity problems of riverine sediments both on local and and river basin scales.

These papers result from an International Symposium on Sediment Dynamics and Pollutant Mobility in River Basins, held in Hamburg, March 26 to 29, 2006.

Contents

Aus den Rezensionen: "In diesem interdisziplinaren Fachbuch werden aus der Feder einer Vielzahl von ausgewiesenen Experten sowohl die Grundlagen als auch zahlreiche Detailaspekte von der Mobilisierung von Stoffen und Materialien in Gewassern uber deren Transport bis hin zu den Ablagerungsprozessen behandelt. Dabei werden sowohl die verschiedenen Untersuchungstechniken ! erortert als auch die moglichen Modelle zur Losung von qualitativen und quantitativen Fragestellungen auf lokaler und uberregionaler Ebene in Gewassersystemen vorgestellt.
