This book treats the subject of sediment transport in the marine environment, covering transport of noncohesive sediment by waves and currents in- and outside the surf zone. The primary aim of the book is to describe the physical processes of sediment transport and how to represent them in mathematical models. The book can be divided in two main parts; in the first, the relevant hydrodynamic theory is described. This part contains a review of elementary theory for water waves, chapters on the turbulent wave boundary layer and the turbulent interaction between waves and currents, and finally, surf zone hydrodynamics and wave driven currents.
The second part covers sediment transport and morphological development. The part on sediment transport introduces the basic concepts critical bed shear stress, bed load, suspended load and sheet layer, near-bed concentration, effect of sloping bed ; it treats suspended sediment in waves and current and in the surf zone, and current and wave-generated bed forms.
