Coastal, Hydraulic Engineering. Salinity and Tides in Alluvial Estuaries.

Coastal, Hydraulic Engineering. View on ScienceDirect. eBook ISBN: 9780080931241. eBook ISBN: 9780080461618. The shape of an alluvial estuary is characterised by exponentially varying width and the absence of bottom slope. This topography is closely related to tidal parameters, hydraulic parameters and parameters that describe 1-dimensional mixing and salt intrusion.

This book also provides tools with which human interference in estuary dynamics can be described and predicted, resulting from, for instance: upstream fresh water abstraction, dredging, climate change or sea-level rise.

Since the publication of "Mixing in Inland and Coastal Waters" by Fischer et al.(1979) and "Estuaries, a Physical Introduction" by Dyer (1973, revised in 1997), no comprehensive theory has been published on salinity and tides in estuaries. This book combines the classical knowledge on salinity and tides with new insights that have been gained during the last decades, within one consistent theoretical framework. * Provides new integrated theory for tidal hydraulics, tidal mixing and salt intrusion in alluvial estuaries* presents a consistent set of analytical equations to compute tidal movement, tidal mixing and salt intrusion, derived from the fundamental laws of conservation of mass and momentum* Serves as a practical guide and methodology with many illustrations of applications in real estuaries

Very good book, well structured and written, clear and concise, new ideas and concepts with extraordinary foundations on maths.

I received it in 6 days, perfectly packed. Nice service.

This book characterizes alluvial estuaries in terms of things like length, bank convergence rate and side storage. Savenije then describes how these factors affect the speed of tide propagation, the phase relationship between velocity and water level (progressive vs standing wave) and the nature of salinity intrusion. I use these insights to diagnose much fancier numerical models of estuaries, and I was surprised how many new things I learned qualitatively. The development in this book is pretty quantitative ... there is some effort spent at creating a Grand Unified Theorem of estuaries and while that isn't the most valuable part to me, it does really tie the book together. The material is all compared back to observations in real estuaries (like Fischer and not like Dyer). Also there are some pearls of wisdom here that may go unrecognized -- for instance, I think there is a great observation here that vertical mixing processes and gravitational circulation have been over-studied because they are interesting and tractable, but that in terms of water management well-mixed conditions are probably more important. Anyhow, I really recommend this book and I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
