About this book

Estuaries: Dynamics, Mixing, Sedimentation and Morphology provides researchers, students, practising engineers and managers access to state-of-the-art knowledge, practical formulae and new hypotheses for the dynamics, mixing, sediment regimes and morphological evolution in estuaries. The objectives are to explain the underlying governing processes and synthesise these into descriptive formulae which can be used to guide the future development of any estuary. Each chapter focuses on different physical aspects of the estuarine system – identifying key research questions, outlining theoretical, modeling and observational approaches, and highlighting the essential quantitative results.

This allows readers to compare and interpret different estuaries around the world, and develop monitoring and modeling strategies for short-term management issues and for longer-term problems, such as global climate change. Estuaries: Dynamics, Mixing, Sedimentation and Morphology is written for researchers and students in physical oceanography and estuarine engineering, and serves as a valuable reference and source of ideas for professional research, engineering and management communities concerned with estuaries.

Biography

David Prandle is currently a Consultant Engineer and a Visiting Professor at the University of Liverpool. He graduated as a Civil Engineer from the University of Liverpool and studied the propagation of a tidal bore in the River Hooghly for his Ph.D. at the University of Manchester. He worked for 5 years as a Consultant to Canada's National Research Council, modeling the St Lawrence and Fraser Rivers. He was then recruited to the UK's Natural Environment Research Council's Bidston Observatory to design the operational software for controlling the Thames Flood Barrier. He has subsequently carried out observational, modeling and theoretical studies of tide and storm propagation, tidal energy extraction, circulation and mixing, temperatures and water quality in shelf seas and their coastal margins.
