About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is to provide the readers of a state-of-the-art of the research regarding cohesive sediment, from a multi-disciplinary approach point of view. This will help researchers to widen their knowledge about the complex processes at stake, and, for instance, enable the creation or improvement of coupled numerical models which are used to study the fate of hydrocarbons in the ocean, the dispersion of cohesive sediment during plume dispersions or the impact of sediment properties on ecology.
For this Research Topic, we welcome papers that explore the relationship between two or more processes related to the properties of cohesive sediment, preferably based on a multidisciplinary approach. Laboratory, field, theoretical and numerical studies are welcome. The submitted articles can be in the form of Original Research, Methods and Perspectives, Reviews, Mini-Reviews, Technology Reports, Hypothesis & Theory, Data Reports and Perspectives that explore the following themes or other related topics: Bio-sedimentary mediation, flocculation, nautical depth, fluid mud, applied rheology, contaminated sediments, relationships between hydrodynamics and morphodynamics, erosion-deposition, sediment transport models, numerical techniques to speed up coupled simulation.
Keywords: cohesive sediments, flocculation, consolidation, sediment transport, organic matter
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
