Although resulting from natural processes that are noticeable by everyone, erosion and sediment transport are shown as scientific topics from only a few decades. Firstly initiated from civil engineering purpose, the need for research and studies is now motivated by queries in agriculture, hygiene, environment quality, transport and regional planning. Within the scope of this paper, the ecological, social and economical stakes related to these questions are collected to keep in prospect research and studies. This paper gathers important assessments relative to erosion and sediment transport. Although we tried to make it as complete as possible, this synthesis is not exhaustive. It deals with erosion and sediment transport ranges and stakes, and it does not tackle neither methods nor tools.
