Silvia Susana Ginsberg

Dr. Silvia Susana Ginsberg is a marine geologist at the Instituto Argentino de Oceanografia in Bahía Blanca, Argentina. Her general research area is in the field of geomorphology and sedimentology of coastal and estuarine environments. She completed the degree in oceanography with orientation in marine geology and her doctorate in Geology, both from Nacional del Sur University of Bahía Blanca city, Argentina. She is a Senior Research at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas (CONICET) y Técnicas and professor at the Department of Ingeniería Civil, University of Tecnológica Nacional, Facultad Regional Bahía Blanca. She has supervised the graduate students and post-graduate fellows focusing especially on estuarine processes. Her research interest includes aspects on sediment transport processes, hydrodynamic and morphodynamics on marine areas. She has authored numerous international and national journal articles and leads several projects on sediment transport.

Sediment transport is a book that covers a wide variety of subject matters. It combines the personal and professional experience of the authors on solid particles transport and related problems, whose expertise is focused in aqueous systems and in laboratory flumes. This includes a series of chapters on hydrodynamics and their relationship with sediment transport and morphological development. The different contributions deal with issues such as the sediment transport modeling; sediment dynamics in stream confluence or river diversion, in meandering channels, at interconnected tidal channels system; changes in sediment transport under fine materials, cohesive materials and ice cover; environmental remediation of contaminated fine sediments. This is an invaluable interdisciplinary textbook and an important contribution to the sediment transport field. I strongly recommend this textbook to those in charge of conducting research on engineering issues or wishing to deal with equally important scientific problems.
