This text offers a thorough analysis of erosion, transport and sedimentation of soil and solid particles by surface waters. The author has aimed for simplicity of presentation, stressing physical understanding based on Newtonian mechanics. He explains fundamental concepts pertaining to the hydrodynamic forces exerted on solid particles, with a lucid treatment of potential flow, viscous flow, turbulent flow, and boundary layers. The text presents detailed methods and procedures commonly used in engineering practice. It also features a variety of exercises and problems for students and researchers, along with numerous examples and case studies for practicing engineers seeking solutions to real-world problems. Students, reseachers, and practitioners in civil, environmental, agricultural, mechanical and chemical engineering, hydrology, sedimentology, and natural resources will find valuable information in this text intended for the classroom and beyond.
