Erosion of soft cohesive sediment deposits
Erosion behavior of soft cohesive sediment deposits has been investigated in laboratory experiments. Such deposits are representative of the top, active layer of estuarial beds. An experimentalExpand

Characterization of Cohesive Sediment Properties and Transport Processes in Estuaries
Important factors characterizing cohesive sediment in estuarial transport are described with reference to measurement of appropriate parameters. Two categories of measurement are required — those forExpand

On estuarine cohesive sediment suspension behavior
Several transport processes must be considered in any evaluation of the behavior of cohesive sediments in estuaries influenced by currents and waves. Focusing on the need to understand the evolutionExpand
