Dr. Faruk Bhuiyan is a water resources specialist with a civil engineering background. He has more than 15 years of experience in teaching, research and consultancy related to sediment transport and river processes. As a commonwealth scholar he obtained Ph.D from the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, UK. Dr. Bhuiyan’s interests encompass field studies, laboratory experimentation and numerical modeling in several areas including large alluvial river processes (e.g., the Ganges and Brahmaputra-Jamuna Rivers), variably saturated groundwater flow modeling and river basin management issues. He visited and worked in a number of institutions including Hydraulic Research Wallingford Ltd. (UK), Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), Loughborough University (UK) and University of Windsor (Canada). As a Visiting Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Alberta, he conducted researches on fish micro-habitat, entrainment during hydropower operation, CFD modeling and sediment mound formation.

The purpose of this book is to put together recent developments on sediment transport and morphological processes. There are twelve chapters in this book contributed by different authors who are currently involved in relevant research. First three chapters provide information on basic and advanced flow mechanisms including turbulence and movement of particles in water. Examples of computational procedures for sediment transport and morphological changes are given in the next five chapters. These include empirical predictions and numerical computations. Chapters nine and ten present some insights on environmental concerns with sediment transport. Last two contributions deal with two large-scale case studies related to changes in the transport and provenance of glacial marine sediments, and processes involving land slides.
