Sediment Cascades: An Integrated Approach begins with an explanation of the need for an integrated approach to sediment delivery systems and introduces the main themes of sediment production, delivery, storage and transfer. Further chapters then focus on specific environments from mountains, through floodplains, to estuaries and the continental shelf.
- Focuses on contemporary sediment system dynamics and current research
- Covers a sequence of environments from steep mountains to the continental shelf
- Highlights the continuity of the subject by linking each component area with its adjacent elements
