    @article{osti_, title = {Fluvial hydrology}, author = {Dingman, S.L.}, abstractNote = {This book discusses the physics of natural flows. Topics covered are as follows: dimensions, units, and significant figures; fundamentals of physical equations; structure and properties of water; open channel flows: forces and classification; uniform flows in open channels; mechanical energy in . Fluvial deposits represent the preserved record of one of the major nonmarine environ ments. They accumulate in large and small intermontane valleys, in the broad valleys of trunk rivers, in the wedges of alluvial fans flanking areas of uplift, in the outwash plains fronting melting glaciers, and in coastal plains. The nature of alluvial assemblages - their lithofacies composition, vertical.

    Major types of continental fluvial deposits and an incised valley, where many braided and meandering-river deposits occur. This chapter contains basic information on the processes by which the different types of deposits form, with emphasis on braided-river, meandering-river, and incised-valley-fill deposits (Fig. ). The Muley Canyon Sandstone comprises alternating coastal fluvial and shoreface deposits similar to the coeval Blackhawk Formation, while the Masuk Formation is a stack of coastal fluvial deposits with a transgressive coal zone near the base of the formation.

    The book summarizes methods of mapping and interpretation of fluvial depositional systems, with a detailed treatment of the tectonic, climatic and eustatic controls on fluvial depositional processes. It focuses on the preserved, ancient depositional record and emphasizes large-scale (basin-scale) depositional processes. This “Hong Kong Geology Guide Book” Geology is a science that requires continuous practice, and a continual improvement in understanding. New observations always lead to a deeper understanding, and to the Early and Middle Jurassic Fluvial Deposits – Tai O Formation 22 (Kau San Tei, Tai O, Lantau Island) 4.

PII s(96) The Geology of Fluvial Deposits, Sedimentary Facies, Basin Analysis and Petroleum Geology. Andrew D. Miall. Springer-Verlag, Berlin,xvi + pp., DM l l(hardcover), ISBN The Geology of Fluvial Deposits is a first overview of fluvial sedimentary geology. In geography and geology, fluvial processes are associated with rivers and streams and the deposits and landforms created by them.

When the stream or rivers are associated with glaciers, ice sheets, or ice caps, the term glaciofluvial or fluvioglacial is used. 1 Fluvial processes. Fluvial processes.

Fluvial channel patterns. Fluvial reservoirs are difficult for the production geologist to understand, characterize, and model. One major problem involves trying to classify fluvial reservoirs in the subsurface. The system used in this book broadly categorizes fluvial systems into meandering and braided fluvial reservoirs.

Fluvial processes and stream deposits have been subjects of study for many centuries but modern studies started with the fundamental work of Gilbert over fifty years ago. This was the beginning of a period of detailed measurements and collection of data for the purpose of math ematically predicting stream behavior.

Fluvial process, the physical interaction of flowing water and the natural channels of rivers and streams. Such processes play an essential and conspicuous role in the denudation of land surfaces and the transport of rock detritus from higher.

The first part of the book, following a historical introduction, constructs the strati graphic framework of fluvial deposits, step by step, starting with lithofacies, combining these into architectural elements and other facies associations, and then showing how these, in turn, combine to represent distinctive fluvial styles.
