Beschreibung

"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.

aspects of sediment management and remediation are also considered as are the potential impacts of on-going and future climatic and environmental change
Readership: 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

Pressestimmen

"This text covers a wide range of well-written and well-researched material that is presented to a high standard. The individual chapters are all well worth reading and present thorough coverage of concepts and debates relevant to the different environments in question... Anyone who is interested in any aspect of sediment transfer will find something of interest in this book." (Geographical Journal, June 2008)
