Description

Presents mathematical models for estimating and predicting sediment fluxes.
* Models provide sufficient detail and data to enable scientists in the field to reproduce the computations and use the models for understanding their own data.
* Provides computations directly applicable to developing modern water quality models.
* All models have been calibrated and verified using three large data sets.

Index.
"Addresses the problem of mathematically modeling the processes in sediments that determine the extent to which materials that settle to the sediment are recycled to the water column." (SciTech Book News Vol. 25, No. 2 June 2001)

"...the definitive text on the subject and deserves a place in any respectable environmental library." (SETAC Globe, Vol. 2, No. 5, September/October 2001)

"...an important addition to the literature...a comprehensive treatise of sediment flux models." (Soil Science, Vol. 168, No. 1, January 2003)
