By Philip J Ashworth,James L. Best,Daniel R Parsons

Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology presents details at the ‘Tidal-Fluvial Transition', the transition sector among river and tidal environments, and comprises contributions that deal with one of the most basic learn questions, together with how the morphology of the tidal-fluvial transition area evolves over brief (days) and lengthy (decadal) time sessions and for various tidal and fluvial regimes, the constitution of the river circulate because it varies in its importance over tidal currents and the way this alterations on the blending interface among clean and saline water and on the turbidity greatest, the function of suspended sediment in controlling bathymetric switch and bar development and the position of fine-grained sediment (muds and flocs), if it is attainable to distinguish among ‘fluvial’ and ‘tidally’ motivated bedforms as preserved in bars and in the adjoining floodplain and what are the diagnostic sedimentary facies of tidal-fluvial deposits and the way are those various from ‘pure’ fluvial and tidal deposits, among different subject matters.

The publication offers the newest examine at the techniques and deposits of the tidal-fluvial transition, documenting fresh significant box courses that experience quantified the circulation, sediment delivery, and mattress morphology in tidal-fluvial zones. It makes use of description of latest environments and historical outcrop analogues to represent the facies switch during the tidal-fluvial transition.

  • Presents the newest results from contemporary, huge, built-in box courses in estuaries round the world
  • Gives targeted box descriptions (outcrop, borehole, center, modern sediments) of tidal-fluvial deposits
  • Accesses new versions and validation datasets for estuarine methods and deposits
  • Presents descriptions of latest environments and old outcrop analogues to signify the facies switch throughout the tidal-fluvial transition
