This volume is the product of the International Conference on Cohesive Sediment Transport (INTERCOH 2003) held at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, U.S.A., during October 1-4, 2003. The topics included in this monograph range from basic research on cohesive sediment dynamics to practical applications. Also included with this book is a database that contains all experimental results as well as a comparison of numerical simulation results supported by the COSINUS project.

* Provides fundamental knowledge of the dynamics of cohesive sediments
* Presents practical applications of new finds on sedimentary processes
* Includes valuable ready-for-use data
