Author: C.R. Murthy, P.C. Sinha, Y.R. Rao.
Description: Modelling and monitoring of coastal marine processes is a collection of selected overview articles presented in a series of training workshops conducted over a decade. In this volume the authors reviewed the basic fluid dynamics and physical processes of the coastal marine environment, marine pollution, marine hazards and coastal marine policy and management. The articles are targeted primarily for non-specialists and practicing professionals who do not have extensive background in coastal marine processes. This book can also serve as a reference monograph for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Examples of regional applications in this book illustrate the use of models and techniques.
