Format: Paperback
This book characterizes alluvial estuaries in terms of things like length, bank convergence rate and side storage. Savenije then describes how these factors affect the speed of tide propagation, the phase relationship between velocity and water level (progressive vs standing wave) and the nature of salinity intrusion. I use these insights to diagnose much fancier numerical models of estuaries, and I was surprised how many new things I learned qualitatively. The development in this book is pretty quantitative ... there is some effort spent at creating a Grand Unified Theorem of estuaries and while that isn't the most valuable part to me, it does really tie the book together. The material is all compared back to observations in real estuaries (like Fischer and not like Dyer). Also there are some pearls of wisdom here that may go unrecognized -- for instance, I think there is a great observation here that vertical mixing processes and gravitational circulation have been over-studied because they are interesting and tractable, but that in terms of water management well-mixed conditions are probably more important. Anyhow, I really recommend this book and I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
