Soil Erosion and Sediment Redistribution in River Catchments:Measurement, Modelling and Management
Edited by P Owens, A Collins, Cranfield University, UK
This book reviews the major achievements recently made in soil erosion and sediment redistribution research and management, and identifies future requirements. The book presents work from key players in river basin soil erosion and sediment redistribution from sources to sinks, field to riverbank, from academia to policy and industry. It examines the developments made in three themes - measurement, modelling and management - and covers a variety of scales (in both time and space) and geographical locations.
Students, researchers and practitioners in soil science, hydrology and geography.
