Contents:
Turbulent dispersion: how results for the zero molecular diffusivity case can be used in the real world -- Hierarchy and interactions in environmental interfaces regarded as biophysical complex systems -- Some recent advances in modeling stable atmospheric boundary layers -- Modelling of stratified and turbulent flow -- The environmental hydraulics of turbulent boundary layers -- Reynolds number effect on spatial development of viscous flow induced by wave propagation over bed ripples -- Calculation of aggregated albedo in rectangular solid geometry on environmental interfaces -- Locating a possible source of air pollution using a combination of measurements and inverse modeling -- Long-term measurements of energy budget and trace gas fluxes between the atmosphere and different types of ecosystems in Hungary -- Integration of spatio-temporal data for fluid modeling in the GIS environment -- Modeling pathogen intrusion on safe drinking water: CFD versus physical models -- Numerical simulation of mass exchange processes in a dead zone of a river -- Modeling mercury fate and transport in aquatic systems -- 3D ecological modelling of the Aveiro Coast (Portugal) -- Experimental calibration of a simplified method to evaluate absolute roughness of vegetated channels.
Summary: Environmental fluid mechanics (EFM) is the scientific study of transport, dispersion and transformation processes in natural fluid flows on our planet Earth, from the microscale to the planetary scale. This book brings together scientists and engineers working in research institutions, universities and academia, who engage in the study of theoretical, modeling, measuring and software aspects in environmental fluid mechanics. It provides a forum for the participants, and exchanges new ideas and expertise through the presentations of up-to-date and recent overall achievements in this field.
