About the book

Sediment transport is one of the most challenging topics in different fields of coastal, hydraulic and environmental engineering. Indeed, it appears in seas and oceans, lakes, rivers, harbors, and many other natural systems.
In the last decades, particular attention to this field has been paid to the coastal erosion problem all over the world. Indeed, the deployment of artificial reservoirs, modification of the runoff characteristics of internal areas, sand extraction from rivers, and harbor siltation, caused a decrease of sediment input on the coastal environments, and, therefore, a generalized deficit in the sediment budget. Often, dredging activities are required to collect sediment finalized to “soft” techniques to restore beaches or to move the sand trapped in the harbor (clean or contaminated).
Moreover, the coastal protections induced hydrodynamics and morphodynamics modifications inducing sometimes strong variations to the sediment transport regime.

Historically, all these aspects are related to specific research areas ranging from engineering, geology, geomorphology, biology, etc, but it is difficult to find a comprehensive overview of these topics.

This book is intended to collect original works and review concerning numerical and experimental investigation, theoretical works, methodological approaches, and any other technique that allow giving the actual state-of-the-art in the field of sediment transport.

Expected publication date: June 20th 2022

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
