Coastal and Estuarine Processes by Peter Nielsen provides complete discussion on introductory remedy to coastal and estuarine processes for earth researchers or engineers. It covers water waves, surf zone hydrodynamics, tides in oceans and estuaries, storm surges, estuarine mixing, simple sediment transportation, coastal morphodynamics, coastal management and coastal groundwater dynamics. Therefore, it is actually suitable for any initial course on the topic.
The Coastal and Estuarine Processes book contains a substantial level of new material. For instance, the explicit, analytical treatment of transient, forced long waves strongly enhances the discussion on tsunami, storm surges and surf conquer. The remedy of turbulent mixing consists of finite mixing duration results, which deliver a rationalization for differential diffusion of distinct sediment measurements in suspension.
The lately discovered outcomes of acceleration and boundary layer streaming may also be integrated within the basic sediment transport models. Additionally, the treatment of beach groundwater dynamics: The mechanisms by which waves and tides generate groundwater motion, builds the link in between the formerly unconnected fields of coastal hydraulics and regional groundwater modeling.
To serve as an effective reference book for experts, Coastal and Estuarine Processes is fully indexed and comprehensively crossed. The topics contain h2o waves, Surf Zone Hydrodynamics, Wind-Driven Circulation and Surges, Tides, Sedimentary Transportation Mechanisms, Morphodynamics and Coastal Groundwater Dynamics.
