Abstract

[Extract] This chapter provides an introduction to Volume 2 of the Treatise, which deals with water and fine-sediment circulation in estuaries and the coastal zone. Chapters 2.02, 2.03, 2.04, and 2.05 are concerned primarily with buoyancy and its consequences for circulation and include topics such as stratification, turbulence, estuarine circulation, surface fronts, plumes, and mixing. Chapters 2.06, 2.07, 2.08, 2.09, and 2.10 consider barotropic and wind-driven motions, especially tides, winds, and waves. Coastal and estuarine interactions, incorporating river plumes on the shelf and coastal oceanography, are dealt with in Chapters 2.11 and 2.12. Chapters 2.13, 2.14, and 2.15 describe biological interactions and sediments and particularly hydrodynamic interactions with biota and sediments. Finally, Chapters 2.16 and 2.17 deal with measurement and modeling techniques for estuarine and coastal waters.
