This book provides a comprehensive overview of the recent developments in river, coastal and estuarine morphodynamics through a collection of review papers written by well-recognized experts in the field. Apart from geoscientists, it is also of special interest to people involved in fluid mechanics who want to understand near wall turbulence and the effects of coherent structures on the mechanisms of sediment transports. Though aimed at geomorphologists and sedimentologists, the termilogy employed in the book makes it generally accessible to engineers, physicists and applied mathematicians at the postgraduate level. The contributions are well-illustrated with splendid pictures of various morphodynamic natural patterns.
