This book includes papers presented at the August symposium organized by the International Commission on Continental Erosion (ICCE). The objectives of the symposium were: 1) to examine the processes and mechanisms in the conveyance and storage of eroded material in drainage networks from upland slopes to stream channels, and 2) to discuss the relationship between erosion and sediment delivery as it affects estimates of basin sediment yield, and problems of scale in drainage basin studies. The papers have been divided into five categories: 1) sediment sources, 2) processes and sediment delivery, 3) storage and mobilization of sediment, 4) modelling of sediment yield and delivery, and 5) data acquisition and analyses.

(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1967)The problem of defining an estuary and delineating the area of estuarine oceanography has concerned me since I first started to study these bodies of water fifteen years ago. It is difficult to develop a definition that ...
