About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Lecture Notes on Coastal and Estuarine Studies Series, Volume 5.

The purpose of this monograph is to summarize the present modelling capability of simulating the transport and dispersion of effluents in the coastal zone regimes of lakes and oceans. It is recognized that the modelling capability strongly depends on the knowledge of the physical processes acquired through theoretical and experimental investigations, and also on the development of computational methods with which these processes can be simulated efficiently and accurately. Our emphasis, therefore, is based on a critical review of several environmental turbulence models which have been directly derived from existing theories and oceanic and limnological data. The search for the computational method is then essentially limited to those which are consistent and adaptive to the theoretical results and the empirical knowledge.
