Erosion Control Books

  • Methods in Karst Hydrogeology

    Filling a gap in the karst literature, this book describes methods most appropriate for use in karst terrains. These include methods that are basic to all hydrogeological studies, such as hydraulic investigations, hydrochemistry, geophysics, isotope chemistry and modelling, with the emphasis placed on their application to karst systems. The ...

  • Morphodynamics of Texel Inlet

    Texel inlet, the largest inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea, has undergone drastic changes in the morphology of its back-barrier basin, ebb-tidal delta and adjacent coastlines after the closure of the Zuiderzee (1926-1932). As a result large sand losses were observed along the adjacent coastlines and still until today the maintenance of this part of ...

  • Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Controls

    Here is a fully up-to-date book, by three leading experts, containing critical design tools for practical implementation of techniques to control and abate runoff and sediment from construction sites. With many original illustrations and examples, this text provides the design principles to monitor and to implement mitigating steps that will ...

  • Soil Erosion and Carbon Dynamics

    In addition to depleting nutrients necessary for healthy crops, soil erosion processes can affect the carbon balance of agroecosystems, and thus influence global warming.. While the magnitude and severity of soil erosion are well documented, fluxes of eroded carbon are rarely quantified. The most complete, nonpartisan source of information ...

  • Methods and materials in soil conservation (CD-ROM) (En)

    Series: FAO Land and Water Digital Media Series - CD-ROMThis CD-ROM is aimed principally at the developing world and the manual it contains describes methods, techniques and the selection of materials for use in areas where access, resources and skills may be limited. The CD-ROM summarizes the factors that control soil erosion. For developers the ...

  • Photo library on soil erosion processes. Photothèque des processus d'érosion du sol. Fototeca de los procesos de erosión del suelo (CD-ROM) (En/Fr/Es)

    Series: FAO Land and Water Digital Media Series - CD-ROMThe trilingual photo library is a complimentary, technically annotated photographic annex to the 'Guidelines for mapping and measurement of rainfall-induced erosion processes in the Mediterranean coastal areas' [United Nations Environmet Programme (UNEP), Mediterranean Action Plan and ...

  • Encyclopedia of Water Science (Print)

    The only source to provide full coverage of current debates in the field, the Encyclopedia offers professional expertise on vital issues including current laws and regulations, irrigation management, agricultural water economics, agroforestry, erosion control, nutrient best management practices, water ...

  • Geotechnical and Environmental Applications of Karst Geology and Hydrology

    This text covers topics such as sinkhole formation and regional studies of sinkholes and karst. Issues addressed are taken from the 8th multidiscilinary conference on this subject and chart the characteristics of sinkholes and karst as well as their environmental ...

  • Guidelines for cave and karst protection

    Cave and karst landforms are distributed widely around the world. They have many values and are an integral component of the world's biodiversity. Some are habitats for a wide range of endemic species of flora and fauna, while others house rare and endangered species. Still others are the sources of rare minerals and some are important for ...

  • Rock for Erosion Control

    Examines the current technology used by scientists, geologists, engineers, and others to measure and evaluate the durability and performance of rock used for riprap, gabions, canal and channel linings, and other erosion control applications. State-of-the-art procedures used by construction and quarry personnel for specification conformance and ...

  • Environmental status reports. Vol. 4 : Conservation status of the Danube Delta

    This report reviews the morphology, climate, geology; natural resources; coastal erosion; ornithological importance; fish and fisheries; institutional considerations; and ethnographic aspects of the Danube Delta. The volume also presents a summary of the socio-economic problems of the Danube Delta Biosphere ...

  • Erosion: Prevention and Useful Application

    The 28 investigative papers in this publication form the basis for technical information concerning a board range of erosion-related ...

  • Physics and Modelling of Wind Erosion

    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- ...

  • Coastal and Shelf Sea Modelling

    Since the computing revolution, modelling has become the most important way in which we further our knowledge about how the sea moves and how the processes in the sea operate. The coast and the continental shelf are two of the most important areas of the sea to understand. Coastal and Shelf Sea Modelling is therefore very timely and ...

  • Man-Induced Soil Erosion on the Southern Piedmont

    Stan Trimble’s study of soil loss and agricultural practice across the Southern Piedmont remains the gold standard as a fusion of theoretical and empirical work in American environmental historical geography. In sheer territorial extent, chronological sweep, evidentiary depth, and methodological ingenuity it is a classic yet to be ...

  • Soil Erosion

    Accelerated degradation of soils and surface waters produce increasing problems in many parts of the world. Within this context, the book addresses the topic Application of Physically Based Soil Erosion Models in order to present some essential tools for improving land-use strategies and conservation measures. Over the last 20 years, the need for ...

  • HDPE Geomembranes in Geotechnics

    HDPE (High-density polyethylene) geomembranes are nowadays widely used for large-area liners and construction sealings in geotechnical engineering. Lining of water ponds, dams and dykes, landfill base liners and cover systems, remediation of contaminated sites, waterproof for tunnels, beneath highways and for various other civil engineering ...

  • Coastal Erosion

    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 ...

  • Karst Environments

    With a focus on karren formation in high mountains, and specifically in the European Alps, this text summarizes the scientific results of systematic observations made during field trips, as well as the interpretation, using modern analytical methods, of the data collected.
