This volume furnishes a combination of basic fluid principles and their application in different situations - on the Earth's surface, underground, and in oceans - detailing the use of physical and numerical models and computational approaches for the analysis of environmental processes. Each chapter contains practical applications of modern fluid mechanics relevant to environmental quality, contaminant transport, global fluid flows, and water quality modeling, as well as useful problem and solution sets.
