Water Resources Publications, LLC Editors' Profile

Editors of the book Gravel-Bed Rivers in the Environment (Cat. No. GBR)


Dr. Peter C. Klingeman PETER C. KLINGEMAN, Professor of Civil Engineering at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, received his Ph.D. from the University of California Berkeley in 1965. He has over 37 years of teaching, research, consulting, writing and editing publications covering broad areas of water resource engineering: river hydrology, hydraulics and sediment transport, hydraulic structures, hydropower, fish habitat and passage engineering, environmental impact assessment and mitigation, and river resource planning and management.


ROBERT L. BESCHTA, Professor of Forest Engineering, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1974. He has over 30 years of teaching, research, consulting, writing and editing publications, in the field of forest hydrology. General areas of interest include watershed management; sediment transport in forest streams, forest land use and water quality, riparian area management and channel morphology, aquatic habitats; and forest stream resource planning and management. Current research emphasizes large woody debris and channel morphology; interactions of stream and subsurface water in forest-range settings; and forest management influences on channel morphology. Dr. Robert L. Beschta


Dr. Paul D. Komar PAUL D. KOMAR, Professor of Oceanography, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, received his Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego in 1969. He has over 30 years of research, writing and editing publications, teaching and consulting experience covering broad areas of geology and oceanography. Topics of special interest include: beach processes and sedimentation; processes of coastal erosion; hydrodynamics of deep-sea turbidity currents; erosion processes of megafloods on Earth and Mars; and gravel transport in rivers. Current research includes studies of coastal erosion in Oregon and New Zealand, sediment accumulation in Oregon estuaries, and the effects of land-use practices on sediment yields from rivers.


JEFFREY B. BRADLEY, chief executive officer at WEST Consultants, Inc, Bellevue, Washington, received his Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 1986. He has over 23 years of professional practice, research, consulting, teaching/training and writing publications in the field of hydraulics, hydrology and sediment transport. Areas of interest and current activities include streambank erosion protection; bridge scour; hyperconcentrated suspended-sediment transportation, mud and debris flows; modeling of sediment transport; and dam-break modeling. He worked as a hydraulic engineer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on rivers near Mt. St. Helens after the volcanic eruption in 1980. Dr. Jeffrey B. Bradley
