Earth Surface Processes, Landforms and Sediment Deposits by John Bridge

Book Description

Earth surface processes, landforms and sediment deposits are intimately related - involving erosion of rocks, generation of sediment, and transport and deposition of sediment through various Earth surface environments. These processes, and the landforms and deposits that they generate, have a fundamental bearing on engineering, environmental and public safety issues; on recovery of economic resources; and on our understanding of Earth history. This textbook brings together the traditional disciplines of sedimentology and geomorphology to explain Earth surface processes, landforms and sediment deposits in a comprehensive and integrated way. It is the ideal resource for a two-semester course in sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, and Earth surface processes from the intermediate undergraduate to beginning graduate level. The book is also accompanied by a website hosting illustrations and material on field and laboratory methods for measuring, describing and analyzing Earth surface processes, landforms and sediments.

Plant Nematodes of Agricultural Importance by John Bridge Plant Nematodes of Agricultural Importance, Hardback (February 2007)

Aims to help people working commercially with crop plants to identify and improve their diagnosis of microscopic soil and plant nematodes of agricultural importance that are parasitic on crop plants. An invaluable reference for growers, farmers and students working in crop protection, plant pathology, and agriculture.

Rivers and Floodplains by John Bridge Rivers and Floodplains, Paperback (March 2003)

Rivers and Floodplains is concerned with the origin, geometry, water flow, sediment transport, erosion and deposition associated with modern alluvial rivers and floodplains, how they vary in time and space, and how this information is used to interpret deposits of ancient rivers and floodplains.

Fundamental Values by John Bridge Fundamental Values, Hardback (December 2000)

John Bridge was awarded a Ph.D. from St Andrews University, Scotland, in 1973. He now holds the position of Professor of Geological Sciences at the State University of New York at Binghamton where his research interests focus on fluvial sedimentology, turbulent water flow and sediment transport. Professor Bridge has served on the editorial boards of several sedimentology journals and he is also the author/editor of two other books. Robert Demicco was awarded a Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University in 1973. He is now Professor of Geology at State University of New York at Binghamton where his research interests focus on carbonate sedimentology and applications of fuzzy logic to geology. Professor Demicco is the author/editor of two books on these topics.
