Is it really true that deforestation and the land use practices of the Himalayan farmers are to blame for the recurring and devastating monsoon floods in the plains of the Ganga and Brahmaputra? The validity of this paradigm has been increasingly questioned. This book presents new evidence resulting from a research project on floods in Bangladesh in... more...

This book is an introduction to the physical processes of cohesive sediment in the marine environment. It focuses on highly dynamic systems, such as estuaries and coastal seas. Processes on the continental shelf are also discussed and attention is given to the effects of chemistry, biology and gas. The process descriptions are based on hydrodynamic... more...

Fluvial Hydraulics provides a sound qualitative and quantitative understanding of water and sediment flows in natural rivers. This understanding is essential for modeling and predicting hydrologic and geomorphologic processes, erosion, sediment transport, water supply and quality, habitat management, and flood hazards. more...

Fast changing legislation and increasing environmental awareness within the non-scientific community demands that the modern approach to the management of rivers and water resources should be based on a sound understanding and application of the scientific and ecological principles that underlie freshwater processes. In two volumes, The Rivers Handbook... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 53.95
River Processes deals primarily with flow and sediment dynamics in alluvial channels. It emphasises water flows (basic principles and characterisation), fluvial sediment, processes of erosion and sediment transport, bedforms that result from flow-bed sediment interactions in sand and gravel, flow and sedimentary processes in curved, braided and confluent... more...

In June 2008, the rivers of eastern Iowa rose above their banks to create floods of epic proportions; their amazing size?flowing in places at a rate nearly double that of the previous record flood?and the rapidity of their rise ruined farmlands and displaced thousands of residents and hundreds of businesses. In Cedar Rapids, the waters inundated more... more...
