Mass Transport Gravity Flows and Bottom Currents Book Review:

Mass Transport, Gravity Flows, and Bottom Currents: Downslope and Alongslope Processes and Deposits focuses solely on important downslope and alongslope processes. The book provides clear definitions and characteristics based on soil mechanics, fluid mechanics and sediment concentration by volume. It addresses Slides, Slumps, and Debris Flows, Grain Flows, Liquefied/Fluidized Flows, and Turbidity Currents, Density plumes, Hyperpycnal Flows, the Triggering Mechanisms of Downslope Processes, Bottom Currents, and Soft-Sediment Deformation Structures. The mechanics of each process are described in detail and used to provide empirically-driven categories to help recognize these deposits it the rock record. Case studies clearly illustrate of the problems inherent in recognizing these processes in the rock record, and potential solutions are provided alongside future avenues of research. An appendix also provides step-by-step guidance in describing and interpreting sediments. Comprehensively addresses modern downslope and alongslope processes, including definitions and mechanisms Provides key criteria for the recognition of depositional facies in the rock record Includes case studies to illustrate each downslope and alongslope process Identifies key problems and potential solutions for future research Uses pragmatic, empirical, data-driven interpretations to revise conventional facies models

New Perspectives on Deep water Sandstones Book Review:

This handbook is vital for understanding the origin of deep-water sandstones, emphasizing sandy-mass transport deposits (SMTDs) and bottom-current reworked sands (BCRSs) in petroleum reservoirs. This cutting-edge perspective, a pragmatic alternative to the conventional turbidite concepts, is crucial because the turbidite paradigm is built on a dubious foundation without empirical data on sandy turbidity currents in modern oceans. In the absence of evidence for sandy turbidity currents in natural environments, elegant theoretical models and experimental observations of turbidity currents are irrelevant substitutes for explaining the origin of sandy deposits as "turbidites." In documenting modern and ancient SMTDs (sandy slides, sandy slumps, and sandy debrites) and BCRSs (deposits of thermohaline [contour] currents, wind-driven currents, and tidal currents), the author describes and interprets core and outcrop (1:20 to 1:50 scale) from 35 case studies worldwide (which include 32 petroleum reservoirs), totaling more than 10,000 m in cumulative thickness, carried out during the past 36 years (1974-2010). The book dispels myths about the importance of sea level lowstand and provides much-needed clarity on the triggering of sediment failures by earthquakes, meteorite impacts, tsunamis, and cyclones with implications for the distribution of deep-water sandstone petroleum reservoirs. Promotes pragmatic interpretation of deep-water sands using alternative possibilities Validates the economic importance of SMTDs and BCRS in deep-water exploration and production Rich in empirical data and timely new perspectives

Deep water Processes and Facies Models Book Review:

This rock-based book is an attempt to link deep-water process sedimentology with sandstone petroleum reservoirs. In presenting a consistent process interpretation, the author has relied on his description and interpretation of core and outcrop (1:20 to 1:50 scale) from 35 case studies (which include 32 petroleum reservoirs), totaling more than 30,000 feet (9,145 m), carried out during the past 30 years (1974-2004). This book should serve as an important source of information for students on history, methodology, first principles, advanced concepts, controversies, and practical applications on deep-water sedimentology and petroleum geology. * Discusses the link between deep-water process sedimentology and petroleum geology * Addresses criteria for recognizing deposits of gravity-driven, thermohaline-driven, wind-driven, and tide-driven processes in deep-water environments * Provides head-on approach to resolve controversial process-related problems

Coastal Engineering VI Book Review:

The pollution and general degradation of coastal areas have become problems of major international concern while the related environmental problems need further study in order to implement effective remedial action. Moreover, the design and construction of developments necessary for navigation such as harbours and marinas require an accurate knowledge of sea climate, especially in cases of extreme conditions.

Mass Transport in Water Waves Book Review:

When a fluid is in periodic wave motion, a fluid particle is carried by a velocity field varying from place to place. At different instants the location of the particle differs and so does the velocity field in its immediate neighborhood. As a result the time-averaged velocity of a particle may be different from the local velocity field. In particular, a fluid particle may have a net mean drift even if the local velocity field has zero mean; this is indeed the case in irrotational gravity waves. In a viscous fluid, the wave-induced Reynolds stress imparts a steady momentum to the fluid; a steady shear is set up to balance it and hence a further mean velocity field results. The sum of these two steady currents provides the total drift by which a fluid particle migrates, and is termed the mass transport velocity. It is of importance to the study of sediment motion in coastal waters. The present report describes a coordinated inquiry into both theoretical and experimental aspects of mass transport by waves. In accordance with the division of effort, it is separated into two parts. However, nearly all ideas expressed and actions taken in both parts have been influenced by extensive mutual discussions. Part I (Theory) begins with a review of the basic assumptions underlying existing theories. General formulas of mass transport velocity components throughout the Stokes boundary layer near a solid body are then derived; details of two examples are calculated. The three-dimensional mass transport distribution throughout the cross section of a wave tank is worked out for progressive waves of very small amplitudes. The effects of finite width is studied with the assumption that vorticity is diffused by molecular viscosity throughout the entire cross section. For a wave obliquely incident and reflected from a vertical sea wall, the structure in the second boundary layer between the Stokes layer and the inviscid core is investigated. This is appropriate for amplitudes much greater than the Stokes layer thickness. Part II (Experiments), were intended in part to check and to evaluate the theoretical deductions in Part I. In particular, extensive measurements were made for the longitudinal mass transport velocity in a progressive wave in a long tank with a smooth bottom. For standing waves and partially standing waves, possible features of erosion and deposition were observed by spreading (1) a small amount of sand on a smooth bottom and (2) a thick layer of sand on the bottom. The relevance of mass transport very near the bottom to the bed load transport is discussed in the light of the real beach environment.

Deep sea Sediments Book Review:

'Deep-Sea Sediments' focuses on the sedimentary processes operating within the various modern and ancient deep-sea environments. The chapters track the way of sedimentary particles from continental erosion or production in the marine realm, to transport into the deep sea, to final deposition on the sea floor.
