    The coastal ocean comprises the semi-enclosed seas on the continental shelf, including estuaries and extending to the shelf break. It is the focus of many serious concerns, including coastal inundation by tides, storm surges or sea level change; fisheries and aquaculture management; water quality; health, and pollution harmful algal blooms; siting and planning of facilities (e.g., power stations); ports and harbor development and maintenance; and accident response. Prediction and modeling of particle motion within these areas is critical to understand and management of these phenomena and activities. This is the first book to summarize the state of the art in modeling and simulation of the transport, evolution, and fate of particles in the coastal ocean. It is an invaluable book for advanced students and researchers in oceanography, geophysics, marine and civil engineering, computational science, and environmental science.
