  • Provides a unique teaching tool for the systematic learning of aquatic modeling - Tackles modeling from a new angle - Introduces aquatic numerical modeling using  a process oriented approach - Enables the thorough understanding of physics and biogeochemistry for lakes and coastal seas - Provides software, datasets and algorithms needed to reproduce all calculations and results in the book - Provides a number of creative and stimulating exercises - Is a good basis for learning Earth System Sciences

Mounting concern about the influence of humans on climate and environmental conditions has increased the need for multi-disciplinary modeling efforts, including systems such as oceans, costal seas, lakes, land surfaces, ice, rivers and atmosphere.

This unique book will stimulate students and researchers to develop

their modeling skills and make model codes and data transparent

to other research groups. The book uses the general equation solver

PROBE to introduce process oriented numerical modeling and to

build understanding of the subject step by step. PROBE is a general

equation solver for one-dimensional transient, or two-dimensional

steady, boundary layers. By the construction of nets of sub-basins the

book illustrates how the process based modeling can be extended,

complementing three-dimensional modeling. The equation solver has

been used in many applications, particularly in Sweden and Finland

with their numerous lakes, archipelago seas, fjords, and coastal zones.

It has also been used for process studies in the Arctic and in the

Mediterranean Sea and the approach is general for applications in many

other environmental applications.... more on http://
