Environmental Fluid Mechanics

Elie R. Bou-Zeid

The course starts by introducing the conservation equations frequently used to describe fluids and their behavior. The effects of buoyancy and earth's rotation for environmental applications of these equations is presented. We then proceed to apply these equations to study air and water flows in various environmental systems including: the atmospheric boundary layer, urban areas and buildings, waves, and lakes. The course also briefly discusses the linkages to larger scale atmospheric and oceanic circulations and introduces some experimental techniques often needed in environmental fluid mechanics studies.
