Abstract
    This loose-leaf book (including modelling package) focusses on the solution of engineering problems related to sedimentation and erosion in rivers, estuaries and coastal seas. The problems considered are: sedimentation (sand and mud) in navigation channels; trenches, mining pits, harbours, river reservoirs, inlets and intakes and other structures; scour and erosion near seawalls, groynes, breakwaters and dams; resuspension from dump sites; dredging aspects; engineering approaches for coastal erosion (detached breakwaters, feeder berms, reef berms). The book (about 600 pages) and models will be regularly updated.
    A detailed overview of mud and sand transport in rivers, estuaries and coastal seas is given. Many examples are presented and explained. The book is of interest to: coastal and harbour consultants, engineers, scientists and managers.
    Various simple and detailed computer programmes are included to compute transport rates and sedimentation volumes.
