You'll learn to manage sediment for sustainable development. . .analyze suspended and deposited sediment. . .and estimate and measure erosion rates. Packed with clear illustrations and how-to examples, the book give you the know-how to:

  • master sediment transport processes in reservoirs
  • apply mathematical and physical models to analyze sediment processes
  • route inflowing sediment through or around reservoir storage pools
  • use turbid density currents to control sedimentation
  • empty and scour sediments from a reservoir by means of hydraulic flushing
  • and much more

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents civil engineers with the conceptual framework and analytical tools to improve the planning, design, and management of existing and proposed reservoirs and their watersheds to reduce sediment impacts and extend the life of the reservoir. Explores the nature and severity of the sedimentation problem and describes all the physical processes involved. The topics include techniques for measuring sediment in rivers and reservoirs, hydraulic management, basic computational procedures, and computer modeling techniques. Seven case studies detail the methods used at sites in the US, China, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and Iran. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
