DUBLIN, Ireland, Feb. 20, 2008 -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of Hydrodynamics and Water Quality: Modeling Rivers, Lakes, and Estuaries to their offering. This hands-on reference illustrates the principles, basic processes, mathematical descriptions, and practical applications of modeling surface waters. It discusses hydrodynamics, sediment processes, toxic fate and transport, and water quality and eutrophication in rivers, lakes, estuaries, and coastal waters.

There has been great progress in mathematical modeling that simulates surface waters numerically. Modeling is becoming a powerful tool, and this reference gets readers up to speed quickly. Practically organized to facilitate quick reference, Hydrodynamics and Water Quality: Modeling Rivers, Lakes, and Estuaries:
• Focuses on how to solve environmental problems in surface waters
• Uses a practical, application-oriented approach: chapters begin with an introduction of basic concepts, proceed to discussions of physical, chemical, and/or biological processes and their mathematical representations, and conclude with real-life case studies
• Has a companion CD that includes a modeling package and electronic files of numerical models, case studies, and model results, plus other materials to help readers use the models and tools
• Features case studies that show how to use models appropriate to environmental and water resources management
• Provides detailed information on how to use the three-dimensional Environmental Fluid Dynamics Code (EFDC) model supported by the EPA

This is a useful reference for environmental scientists, engineers, geologists, chemists, and government regulators, as well as other water quality professionals. It is also an excellent text for graduate students in fields that encompass hydrodynamics and water quality.
