Summary

This reference for engineers, and graduate students covers sediment transport and morphodynamics modelling in nearshore environments. It presents the fundamentals required for understanding the physics and for setting up numerical models. The book covers hydrodynamics of estuarine and coastal environments, properties of seafloor and estuarine composition, and hydro-environmental interactions; emphasising the inter-relations of small and large scale processes, and short and large evolution timescales. The focus is, principally, on the application of shallow water theory, but some surface wave models, and coupling of shallow water models with surface waves will also be discussed. Guidance on running regional models, and worked examples and case studies are directed to managed realignment, coastal protection and climate change.
