About this book

Estuaries represent one of the most complex and fascinating of the natural environments, where constantly changing water depths generate rapidly reversing currents and transport vast quantities of salt, heat and sediment on a daily basis.

"Estuaries: Monitoring and Modeling the Physical System" introduces readers to these processes with a wide ranging introduction to the geological evolution of estuaries, and details of bathymetry, tides, currents, salt and heat, and suspended sediment. By carefully building a working computer model which accurately emulates the systems complexities, students learn quickly to model the tides and currents and then to build and test salinity, temperature and suspended sediment modules. The book is strongly supported with a web site which includes: regularly updated dynamic internet references; excelettes for individual formulae; and diagrams full coding for the estuarine model.
