About this book

In addition to chapters modeling the dynamic natural processes of waves, currents, circulatory flows and sediment transport there are also chapters that focus on the modeling of beaches, shorelines, tidal basins and shore platforms.


Preface. Acknowledgments. List of Contributors. 1. Boussinesq models and applications to nearshore wave propagation, surf zone processes and wave-induced currents (J.T. Kirby). 2. Frequency domain wave models in the nearshore and surf zones (J.M. Kaihatu). 3. Advanced numerical methods for coastal hydrodynamics (C.G. Mingham). 4. Numerical models for nearshore currents (H. Noda). 5. Spectral wave models in coastal areas (J. Monbaliu). 6. Probabilistic models of waves in the coastal zone (C.G. Soares). 7. Modeling the effects of permeable and reflective structures on waves and nearshore flows (I.J. Losada). 8. Perspective on evolution in sediment modelling (K. Black). 9. Large-scale finite element modeling and parallel computation of sediment transport in coastal areas (O.W.-H. Wai, Y.--W. Jiang, Q.--M. Lu). 10. Nonlinear wave modeling and sediment transport in the surf and swash zone theophanis (V. Karambas). 11. Modeling the morphological response in a coastal zone for different temporal scales (I.O. Leont'yev). 12. Numerical modeling of beach topography change (M. Larson, H. Hanson, N.C. Kraus). 13. Morphodynamic modeling of tidal basins and coastal inlets (M.J.F. Stive, Z.B. Wang). 14. Modeling shore platforms: present status and future developments (A.S. Trenhaile). 15. Merging scales in models of water circulation: perspectives from the Great Barrier Reef (E. Wolanski, R. Brinkman et al.). 16. A numerical simulation of Japan/East Sea (JES) thermohaline structure and circulation (P.C. Chu, S. Lu et al.). 17. Analytical modeling of pollution flushing in well-mixed tidal embayments (R.W. Barber). 18. Advances in water quality modeling in the coastal environment (M.S. Dortch). 19. Neural network applications in coastal ecological modeling (M. Scardi). 20. Space-time transfer function models of beach and shoreline data for medium--term shoreline monitoring programs (P.D. Lavalle). 21. Progress in geographical information systems and coastal modeling: an overview (D.R. Green, S.D. King). Index.
