About this book
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://
