Sedimentation Symposium to honor H.A. Einstein


  • Anonymous


A symposium on sedimentation will be held June 21–22, 1971, at the University of California at Berkeley, to honor H.A. Einstein upon his retirement in June 1971. The symposium will discuss the theoretical and experimental developments in which Einstein has contributed significantly: sediment transport mechanism and rates, alluvial bed roughness, erosion and deposition of cohesive and cohesionless channels, and secondary currents in open channels. Field observations as well as laboratory investigations on these subjects will be presented.
