Morphodynamics offers insight into the evolution of consistent, self-adjusting morphologies such as drainage basins, the long profiles of rivers or the shape of shorelines, and the persistence of rhythmic features such as beach cusps. Including a mix of basic and applied research, this book offers the latest research results concerning quantitative modelling of the interaction of water and sediment and the shapes this interaction makes. The text integrates both large-scale and submarine morphodynamics. Highly interdisciplinary in nature, the book covers such topics as geomorphology open-channel hydraulics, sediment transport dynamics, fluid mechanics, ecohydraulics, sedimentology, and stratigraphy.A Study area: Biesbosch freshwater tidal basin B Rhine delta apex: Lobith bifurcation agt;aquot; 1 Rotterdam estuary/) 2 ... 1700 AD 100km \ Artificial channels, post 1700 AD Figure 1 . ...
