Coherent Flow Structures at Earth's Surface

Buy

An expert review of recent progress in the study of turbulent flows with a focus on recently identified organized structures. 

This book reviews the recent progress in the study of the turbulent flows that sculpt the Earth’s surface, focusing in particular on the organized structures that have been identified in recent years within turbulent flows. These coherent flow structures can include eddies or vortices at the scale of individual grains, through structures that scale with the flow depth in rivers or estuaries, to the large-scale structure of flows at the morphological or landform scale. These flow structures are of wide interest to the scientific community because they play an important role in fluid dynamics and influence the transport, erosion and deposition of sediment and pollutants in a wide variety of fluid flow environments. 

Scientific knowledge of these structures has improved greatly over the past 20 years as computational fluid dynamics has come to play an increasing important part in building our understanding of coherent flow structures across a broad range of scales.

Chapters comprise a series of major, invited papers and a selection of the most novel, innovative papers presented at the second Coherent Flow Structures Conference held August 3-5, 2011 at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia. 

Chapters focus on six major themes:

  • Dynamics of coherent flow structures (CFS) in geophysical flows
  • Interaction of turbulent flows, vegetation and ecological habitats
  • Coherent structure of atmospheric flows
  • Numerical modeling of coherent flow structures
  • Turbulence in open channel flows
  • Coherent flow structures, sediment transport and morphological feedbacks.

Pragmatic Version Control Using Subversion
Pragmatic Version Control Using Subversion
This book covers the theory behind version control and how it can help developers become more efficient, work better as a team, and keep on top of software complexity. All projects need version control: it's the lifeblood of any project's infrastructure, yet half of all project teams in the U.S. don't use any version control at all. Many others...

Rath & Strong's Six Sigma Team Pocket Guide

Why are an alarming number of Six Sigma projects failing? The answer has nothing to do with the technical and statistical tools of Six Sigma—it’s the soft side: lack of team skills, internal politics, and bad communication. Your organization can overcome these fatal problems with Rath & Strong’s Six Sigma Team...

Pancreatic Cancer: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Medicine)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Annually approximately 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease and most will die from it within five years. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is unique because of its late onset in age, high mortality, small tumor samples...
