  • 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 ...

  • CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: Evaluation and Remediation Techniques

    Thirty-eight peer-reviewed papers focus on the latest advances in the fields of environmental science and underwater engineering related to sediments. Topics cover characterization, evaluation, mitigation, restoration and management of contaminated sediments in the fields of oceanography, limnology, sedimentology, geochemistry, marine ...

  • CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: Characterization, Evaluation, Mitigation/Restoration, and Management Strategy Performance

    This new publication reviews recent advances in contaminated sediments-management-related research and focuses on the engineering aspects of contaminant transport, erosion, stability, monitoring, and modeling. It identifies both established and innovative physico-chemical and biological tests and methods used to characterize and evaluate ...

  • Erosion and Sediment Control Technology Standards - CD-ROM

    THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY EROSIONCD07.Erosion and Sediment Control Technology Standards provides 44 of the latest standards relating to the sediment and erosion control industry. Many of the standards relate to products used in the industry, including: turf reinforcement mats, erosion control, blankets, articulated concrete blocks, ...

  • Strength Testing of Marine Sediments: Laboratory and In-Situ Measurements

    Provides a unifying state-of-the-art review of marine sediment strength testing. Identifies the types and varieties of in-situ and laboratory strength tests. Determines the environmental handling and preparation factors that affect strength measurements. ...

  • The Impact of Desert Dust Across the Mediterranean

    The atmosphere is an important pathway for the transport of continentally-derived material to the oceans. In this respect the Mediterranean Sea is of special importance because its atmosphere receives inputs of anthropogenic aerosols from the north and desert- derived Saharan dusts from the south. The dusts, much of which is transported in ...

  • Radioecology in Northern European Seas

    Radioecology in Northern Euroepean Seas summarizes an extensive body of literature on the oceanographic and biological conditions involved in the transfer and accumulation of radionuclides in marine sediment and biota of the Northern European seas. Much of the information has been derived through many decades of investigation carried out by the ...

  • Sedimentation and Sediment Transport

    It is evident, that for a number of ecological and technical problems in rivers and lakes a better knowledge of sediment transport and sedimentation is needed together with the ability to predict and simulate sediment behaviour. On the other hand, a stagnation of research in these topics could be observed in the last decades. At the Symposium an ...

  • Contaminated Sediments

    When discussing the issue of contamination of the aquatic environment, water pollution is still the major aspect that has been regulated and extensively studied, but poor attention has been devoted to sediments. Sediments have been described as the sink or storage place and a source for contaminants entering river systems through various pathways. ...

  • Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments

    Contaminated sediments pose some of the most difficult site remediation issues. Contaminated sediments typically reside in spatially variable and dynamic systems subject to seasonal flow variations and episodic storm events. The volume of sediments that must be managed at particular sites often exceeds one million cubic meters, dwarfing many ...

  • The Sea Floor

    The Sea Floor deals with the most important results achieved in Marine Geology over the last three decades. Relevant geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological methods are shortly described. They should allow the reader to comment on new results about plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, ...
