This is the Proceedings of the International Symposium on Sediment Transport Modeling, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, August, 1989. It reviews the state of the art and presents the latest findings in sedimentation research. These findings are the result of the use of mathematical, numerical or physical models, and field observation. They cover such topics as sedimentation in lake, reservoir, river, estuary and coastal waters; scouring and deposition; channel migration; bank erosion and stability; and nonequilibrium transport. This collection of papers provides the civil engineer with a review of the field and guidelines to future developments.
