Sediment dynamics in fluvial systems is of great ecological, economic and human-health-related significance worldwide. Appropriate management strategies are therefore needed to limit maintenance costs as well as minimize potential hazards to the aquatic and adjacent environments. Human intervention, ranging from nutrient/pollutant release to physical modifications, has a large impact on sediment quantity and quality and thus on river morphology as well as on ecological functioning. Truly understanding sediment dynamics requires as a consequence a multidisciplinary approach.

River Sedimentation contains the peer-reviewed scientific contributions presented at the 13th International Symposium on River Sedimentation (ISRS 2016, Stuttgart, Germany, 19-22 September 2016), and includes recent accomplishments in theoretical developments, numerical modelling, experimental laboratory work, field investigations and monitoring as well as management methodologies. The book is divided into six topics:
A - Integrated sediment management at the river basin scale
B - Sediment transport
C - River morphodynamics
D - Hydromorphology meets ecology
E - Reservoir sustainability
F - Social, economic and political aspects of sediment management

The book also includes five special topics: 1 - Hydropower and sediment management, 2 - Navigation and river morphology, 3 - Innovative measurement techniques, 4 - SEDITRANS – Sediment transport in fluvial, estuarine and coastal environment, 5 - Sustainable land management. The aforementioned subject areas will be of interest to academics, engineers and professionals.
