Kurzbeschreibung

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. Papers are reviewed and printed to the same highstandards as those published in the journal Sedimentologyand several of these volumes have become standard works ofreference.

Michael Li is a research scientist at the Atlantic branch ofthe Geological Survey of Canada. After obtaining degrees from OceanUniversity of China and Oregon State University, Michael has workedin and published on the coastal and shelf systems of China, UnitedStates, and Canada. 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. Dr. Sherwood studied at Bowdoin College and theUniversity of Washington. 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.
Phil Hill is a research scientist with the GeologicalSuvey of Canada. Since graduating with degrees from theUniversity of Oxford and Dalhousie University, he has practicedmarine geology in government, universities and the privatesector. He has published on marine geology and sedimentologyall around Canada, including the east and west coasts, the BeaufortSea and Hudson Bay.
