The application of multibeam and sediment transport measurementtechnologies and the adoption of multi-faceted researchmethodologies have greatly advanced our understanding of thesedimentary processes on continental shelves in the last decade.

This book uniquely blends  cutting-edge research andstate-of-the art review articles that take stock of new advances inmultibeam mapping and sediment transport technologies, spatialanalysis and modelling, and the applications of these advances tothe understanding of shelf sediments, morphodynamics, andsedimentary processes. Case studies are also presented toillustrate the utilization of seabed property and process knowledgein habitat mapping and ocean management

With its mix of papers focusing on technological advances,integration of shelf morphology and processes, and the applicationof these advances to coastal and ocean management, this SpecialPublication volume will serve as a milestone reference forprofessional marine scientists and as advanced text for students inmarine geology, sedimentology and oceanography.

This book is part of the International Associationof Sedimentologists (IAS) Special Publications.

The Special Publications from the IAS are a set of thematicvolumes edited by specialists on subjects of central interest tosedimentologists.

His current research interests include boundarylayer dynamics and sediment transport processes through in situmeasurements of instrumented seabed landers, offshore geohazardsand mobility of large-scale bedforms through multibeam and sidescansurveys and sampling, physical and numerical models ofhydrodynamics and sediment transport processes on continentalshelves and in coastal environments.

Chris Sherwood is a research oceanographer with the U. S.Geologcal Survey and works at the Woods Hole Coastal and MarineScience Center.

Before joining the USGS, he worked forthe marine research division of the Commonwealth Scientific andIndustry Research Organisation in Hobart, Australia. His researchis focused on development of open-source models for sedimenttransport in coastal ocean environment, and on field measurementsto evaluate the models.

Review:

“The references are up-to-date and largely accessible. Imust congratulate the ed­itors, authors and publisher for thisexcellent work and for the affordable price, although a paperbackvolume would possibly have been more handsome.” (Geologos, 1 September 2013)
