Coastal Erosion

by Springer

The coastal zone is subject to strong pressures from a large number of users. Populations are migrating to it in large numbers. Industry wants to exploit it for its space, water and manpower. Aggregate miners want to exploit mineral resources and health centers are multiplying. It is a favorite area for tourism and recreation worldwide. The zone ...;

Geosynthetics

by ASTM International

Volume 04.13 focuses on the mechanical, endurance, permeability, and filtration properties of geosynthetics. This includes standards for geosynthetic Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM's), designed to provide erosion protection for the design life of a project. Applications such as roadway stabilization and repair, erosion control, and soil ...;

Physics and Modelling of Wind Erosion

by Springer

This book provides a comprehensive summary of the recent developments in wind erosion research and a clear outline of its future directions. The physics of wind erosion, from particle entrainment to transport and deposition, is described with rigor from the viewpoints of fluid dynamics and soil physics. The techniques for quantitative wind- ...;

River Basin Management IV

by WIT Press (Wessex Institute of Technology)

River basin management is a complex and interdisciplinary issue. It essentially includes river and groundwater flows, quantity and quality of water resources, water and soil interaction, droughts and floods; all these, in a frame of increasing and competing human demands, deterioration of natural resources, climate change, changing public views, ...;

Geotextile Testing and the Design Engineer

by ASTM International

This book describes 1) the tests used by scientists and engineers to develop and then specify geosynthetics, and 2) the applications where those test results are used. It will help designers understand geotextile properties and tests and prepare specifications.;

Management and Sustainable Development of Coastal Zone Environments

by Springer

Coastal areas face increasing pressures from land use change, developmental activities, shoreline erosion, biodiversity losses and natural calamities. This volume addresses these issues facilitating the integrated analysis of the sustainability of coastal zones. The contributors have tried to focus their respective works on the problems that need ...;
