Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces
by Carlo Gualtieri

Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces treats exchange processes occurring at the interfaces between atmosphere and the surface of the sea, then those between atmosphere and land surface.

Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces:

  • Examines exchange processes occurring at the interfaces between atmosphere and the surface of the sea, and atmosphere and land surface
  • Deals with the phenomena that affect transport of material to and from the surface of an organism, including molecular and turbulent diffusion.
  • Discuses relevant issues related to mass transfer to and from benthic plants and animals

Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces also describes processes at the environmental interfaces of freshwater, such as gas-transfer at free-surfaces of rivers, advective diffusion of air bubbles in turbulent water flows and boundary-layers phenomena in vegetated open channels.
