Water Resources Publications, LLC Editors' Profile
Editors of the book Gravel-Bed Rivers in the Environment
(Cat. No. GBR)
||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.
||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.
