Abstract:

This literature review surveys published models of hydrodynamics, sediment transport, water quality, and ecosystems in estuaries and intertidal wetlands. The review was based on the needs and problems of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers CE in the coastal zone as revealed by a survey of CE Field Offices with coastal responsibility. In addition, a workshop, conducted in New Orleans in June 1979, assessing the state of the art in understanding and modeling estuarine and wetland processes, served to define the scope of the literature review.
