Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains some 150 papers from the December 1998 symposium, which was held jointly with a symposium on environmental hydraulics. The principal subjects are sediment transport mechanics, bridge and bed scour, hyperconcentrated and debris flow, experimental and numerical techniques, sediment budget and reservoir sedimentation, river training and sediment control, erosion and sediment yield, and physical and numerical modeling. There are also several case studies from the Asian region, including sedimentation problems resulting from the construction of the Three Gorges Dam across the Yangtze River, and the increasing levels of sedimentation in the downstream reaches of the Yellow River. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
