Estuaries - a physical introduction

By: Dyer, K.R.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: John Wiley and Sons 1997Edition: 2nd edition.Description: 195p.Subject(s): Book | Chemistry | Estuaries | Geology and geophysics | Marine and estuarine pollution | Meteorology and climatology | OceanographySummary: Estuaries is a comprehensive introductory text emphasizing the physical processes involved in the mixing of sea and river water and the transport of fine sediments within the complex estuarine topographic context. The theoretical and mathematical formulation of these processes are treated at a fairly elementary level, and are used to develop a foundation for more extensive study. A second edition retains the classical approaches to the tidally averaged circulation and mixing conditions but broadens them to consider recent advances in the understanding of processes occurring within the tide. The scope has also been widened to include more detail on the morphology of estuaries and their development, the fluxes of suspended fine sediments, and the generation and maintenance of turbidity maximum.
