Contents:
Preface -- 1. Modeling preliminaries -- 2. Modeling tools and techniques -- 3. Mathematical foundations -- 4. Numerical methods -- 5. Modeling diffusion -- 6. Shoreline management -- 7. Ecosystems and other biological modeling -- 8. Climate change and other topics -- 9. Conclusion -- Appendix A. Answers to and comments on the exercises -- Appendix B. Notation -- Bibliography -- Index.
Scope and content: "Modeling is now a major tool for important environmental strategies. This book allows the non-specialist reader to understand and criticize current models of the shallow sea and coastal environments. Sufficient background on mathematics and statistics is covered, but readers disinclined to spend time on this may use the book as a reference guide in modeling. Topics include the numerical schemes used, modeling the sea bed, modeling shallow sea dynamics and, unusually for this type of book, modeling ecosystems and animals."--BOOK JACKET.
