With the increasing awareness of the heavy burden placed on environmental resources and the need for industry and public institutions to cope with more stringent regulations, this timely book focuses on some specific, but very important, environmental problems, namely, surface and subsurface hydrosystems. Covering state-of-the-art techniques to model such systems, the volume will be of great benefit to all researchers in applied mathematics and environmental engineering.Sample Chapter(s)Chapter 1: A Finite Volume Formulation of the Mixed Finite Element Method for Triangular Elements (596 KB)Contents:A Finite Volume Formulation of the Mixed Finite Element Method for Triangular Elements (P Ackerer & A Younes)Finite Element Modeling of Hydrosystems with Fully Saturated, Variably Saturated, and Overland Flows (A Ern)Sharp Front Modeling (P Goblet)Numerical Modeling of Biological Processes: Specificities, Difficulties and Challenges (C Gourlay et al.)Ecological Simulation of Red Tides in Shallow Sea Area (D Wang)Subsurface Pathways of Contaminants to Coastal Waters: Effects of Oceanic Oscillations (L Li)Studies on Retrieval of the Initial Values and Diffusion Coefficient of Water Pollutant Advection and Diffusion Process (T Wang et al.)Application of the Tabu Search Method to the Parameters of Groundwater Simulation Models (J Chen & Z Zhou)Several Problems in the River Networks Hydraulic Mathematics Model (X Xu & D Wang)Study on the Character of Equilibrium Point and Its Impact on the Changing Rate of Phytoplankton Concentration Using a Simple Nutrient-Phytoplankton Model (J Yang et al.)A Numerical Simulation of Thermal Discharge into a Tidal Estuary with FVM (J Zhou et al.)Readership: Graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics and environmental engineering.
