Scour and erosion represent some of the most critical threats to maintaining infrastructure and quality of life throughout the world. As the human population expands, the responsibilities of engineers, scientists, and designers continue to increase. The demand for a creative approach to effective control of scour and erosion also becomes more pressing, requiring cross-disciplinary synthesis of information from the fields of hydraulic and geotechnical engineering. The papers in this Geotechnical Special Publication were presented at the 5th International Conference on Scour and Erosion, held in San Francisco, California, November 7 10, 2010. The conference was co-sponsored by the ASCE Geo-Institute and the ASCE Environmental and Water Resources Institute. The papers presented in this book examine the scour and erosion of hillside, fluvial, estuarine, and coastal environments at the interface of water, soil, and rock. This proceedings will be valuable to anyone working in the fields of geotechnical or environmental engineering.
