3. “Sediment Dynamics and the Hydromorphology of Fluvial Systems” by John S Rowan and Robert W Duck

“Sediment Dynamics and the Hydromorphology of Fluvial Systems” Book Review: This book explores a range of spatial and temporal scales, from global and continental-scale fluxes to detailed process studies on small instrumented catchments, and particularly the role of extreme events. It examines process links between hydromorphology and ecology are examined and management-related studies. It also focuses on the utility of sedimentary archives for reconstructing long-term sediment fluxes and elucidating the impact of land-use and climate change on sediment delivery and biogeochemical cycling. It reports flume-based hydraulics and microcosm studies of diffuse pollutant behavior and other developments in experiment-led research and modeling. It includes areas like groundwater, surface water, snow and ice hydrology, drought and desertification, runoff modeling, watershed, remote sensing, water quality, water resources and management, ecohydrology/hydro-ecology, erosion, and sediment, and tracer hydrology.

“Sedimentation in the Rupnarayan River: Volume 1: Hydrodynamic Processes under a Tidal System (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)” Book Review: This book is for engineers, hydrologists, planners, and other authorities affected by several aspects related to sedimentation. It explains the causes, mechanisms, and dimension of sedimentation in the Rupnarayan River. It addresses all the hydrodynamic characteristics of the river, especially the tidal impact, sediment load, and textural characteristics of the sediments.

5. “RIVER PROCESSES: An introduction to fluvial dynamics (Arnold Publication)” by R ANDRE

“RIVER PROCESSES: An introduction to fluvial dynamics (Arnold Publication)” Book Review: This book is for undergraduate students interested in fluvial studies as part of physical geography, earth sciences, environmental sciences, and ecology courses. It emphasizes basic principles and characterization of water flows, fluvial sediment, processes of erosion and sediment transport, bedforms that result from flow-bed sediment interactions in sand and gravel, flow and sedimentary processes in curved, braided, and confluent channels, as well as aquatic habits. It provides current knowledge about physical processes in alluvial channels, with an emphasis on the recent work on flow-bed-sediment transport interactions. It contains line drawings and photographs.

“Advances in Fluvial Dynamics and Stratigraphy” Book Review: This book explains the hydrodynamics of turbulent flow, followed by basic two and three-dimensional flow through straight and curved channels and the flow over bed topography and then followed by a consideration of the initial motion, sediment transport, and particle sorting. It talks about the potential for modeling fluid sediment interactions, the preservation potential of fluvial bedforms in the stratigraphic record, the basic variety of channel morphology recognized in sedimentary studies, hydraulic process and fluvial morphology from stratigraphy, the influence of bedform and depositional controls on packing of economically important sedimentary rocks, and recent advances in modeling subsurface fluvial stratigraphy.

9. “Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology (Developments in Sedimentology Book 68)” by Philip J Ashworth and James L Best

“Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology (Developments in Sedimentology Book 68)” Book Review: This book provides information on the ‘Tidal-Fluvial Transition’, the transition zone between the river and tidal environments, and it explains how the morphology of the tidal-fluvial transition zone evolves over short (days) and long (decadal) periods and for different tidal and fluvial regimes, the structure of the river flow as it varies in its magnitude over tidal currents and how this changes at the mixing interface between fresh and saline water and at the turbidity maximum, the role of suspended sediment in controlling bathymetric change and bar growth and the role of fine-grained sediment. It talks about the latest research on the processes and deposits of the tidal-fluvial transition, documenting recent major field programs that have quantified the flow, sediment transport, and bed morphology in tidal-fluvial zones.
