Sediment and Ecohydraulics Book Description :

Sediments and Ecohyraulics is comprised of papers submitted to the 6th International Conference on Cohesive Sediments (INTERCOH 2005) held in Saga, Japan, September 2005. The papers are divided into two major categories. The first is basic processes, including erosion, settling, flocculation, and consolidation. The second major catagory is application of the understanding of cohesive sediments to address specific issues, including waterway and part management, fluid mud behavior, and contaminiated sediment management. *Provides an up-to-date resource of the present knowledge of cohesive sediment transport processes *Contains practical solutions on cohesive transport problems *Presents information on managing cohesive sediments

Ecohydraulics Book Description :

Ecohydraulics: An Integrated Approachprovides a researchlevel text which highlights recent developments of this emergingand expanding field. With a focus on interdisciplinaryresearch the text examines:- the evolution and scope of ecohydraulics interactions between hydraulics, hydrology, fluvialgeomorphology and aquatic ecology the application of habitat modelling in ecohydraulicstudies state of the art methodological developments andapproaches detailed case studies including fish passage design and themanagement of environmental flow regimes research needs and the future of ecohydraulics research The contributions offer broad geographic coverage to encapsulatethe wide range of approaches, case studies and methods used toconduct ecohydraulics research. The book considers a range ofspatial and temporal scales of relevance and aquatic organismsranging from algae and macrophytes to macroinvertebrates andfish. River management and restoration are also considered indetail, making this volume of direct relevance to those concernedwith cutting edge research and its application for water resourcemanagement. Aimed at academics and postgraduate researchers in departmentsof physical geography, earth sciences, environmental science,environmental management, civil engineering, biology, zoology,botany and ecology; Ecohydraulics: An Integrated Approachwill be of direct relevance to academics, researchers andprofessionals working in environmental research organisations,national agencies and consultancies.

Sediment Transport in Coastal Waters Book Description :

The interface of 440,000 km long coastline in the world is subject to global change, with an increasing human pressure (land use, buildings, sand mining, dredging) and increasing population. Improving our knowledge on involved mechanisms and sediment transport processes, monitoring the evolution of sedimentary stocks and anticipating changes in littoral and coastal zones is essential for this purpose. The special issue of Water on “Sediment transport in coastal waters” gathers thirteen papers which introduce the current revolution in the scientific research related to coastal and littoral hydrosedimentary dynamics, and reflect the diversity of concerns on which research in coastal sediment transport is based, and current trends — topics and preferred methods — to address them.

Integrating Ecohydraulics in River Restoration Book Description :

Rivers have been intensively degraded due to increasing anthropogenic impacts from a growing population in a continuously developing world. Accordingly, most rivers suffer from pressures as a result of increasing dam and weir construction, habitat degradation, flow regulation, water pollution/abstraction, and the spread of invasive species. Science-based knowledge regarding solutions to counteract the effects of river degradation, and melding principles of aquatic ecology and engineering hydraulics, is thus urgently needed to guide present and future river restoration actions. This Special Issue gathers a coherent set of studies from different geographic contexts, on fundamental and applied research regarding the integration of ecohydraulics in river restoration, ranging from field studies to laboratory experiments that can be applied to real-world challenges. It contains 13 original papers covering ecohydraulic issues such as river restoration technologies, sustainable hydropower, fish passage designs and operational criteria, and habitat modeling. All papers were reviewed by international experts in ecology, hydraulics, aquatic biology, engineering, geomorphology, and hydrology. The papers herein well represent the wide applicability of ecohydraulics in river restoration and serve as a basis to improve current knowledge and management and to reduce arguments between different interests and opinions.
