Series: Developments in Sedimentology

Elsevier's Developments in Sedimentology book series is designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of Sedimentology. The series encompasses research into sediments and sedimentary rocks. Topics include analytical techniques to regional or geodynamical aspects of sedimentary systems and basin analysis; subsurface analysis of sedimentary sequences, diagenesis, chemical sedimentology and numerical modelling.

For more information about the series or to submit a proposal, please contact the Series Editor or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at susan.dennis@elsevier.com.

Book Series: Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology

Most recent volume


Volume 68. Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology

Published: 23rd November 2015 Series Volume Editors: Philip Ashworth James Best Daniel Parsons

Fluvial-Tidal Sedimentology provides information on the ‘Tidal-Fluvial Transition', the transition zone between river and tidal environments, and includes contributions that address some of the most fundamental research questions, including how the morphology of the tidal-fluvial transition zone evolves over short (days) and long (decadal) time 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 (muds and flocs), whether it is possible to differentiate between ‘fluvial’ and ‘tidally’ influenced bedforms as preserved in bars and within the adjacent floodplain and what are the diagnostic sedimentary facies of tidal-fluvial deposits and how are these different from ‘pure’ fluvial and tidal deposits, amongst other topics.

The book presents 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. It uses description of contemporary environments and ancient outcrop analogues to characterize the facies change through the tidal-fluvial transition.
