Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book is a valuable theoretical resource for graduate students specialising in estuary processes and for researchers in related disciplines. It is also a useful guide for practitioners and consultants with its wide range of analytical equations, describing hydraulic, mixing and salt intrusion processes in estuaries."--BOOK JACKET.

Synopsis:

The book describes an integrated theory that links estuary shape to tidal hydraulics, tidal mixing and salt intrusion. The shape of an alluvial estuary is characterised by exponentially varying width and the absence of bottom slope. This topography is clo
