Integrating hydrologic and hydrodynamic models for decision support systems and management of coastal zones and estuaries
2010 (English)In: Management and Sustainable Development of Coastal Zone Environments, Springer Netherlands, 2010, 85-97 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
An estuary may be defined as a semi-enclosed coastal basin, or system of basins, which has limited water exchange with the open sea, and which is measurably diluted with freshwater discharge from the land. Often the dynamics of an estuary are also strongly affected by tidal forcing. An exact understanding of all the processes occurring, and their application to make reliable predictions in real estuarine system, remains as a challenge.
