MSCI 615 - Hydrodynamic Modeling of Estuarine and Coastal Waters

Spring (3) Wang Prerequisite(s): MSCI 520  or Instructor's consent

This course will survey numerical methods for the solution of partial differential equations describing the estuarine and coastal water motion and transport. Topics include stability, accuracy, consistency and convergence analysis of numerical scheme, formulation of primitive and scalar transport equations, and the pre- and post-processing for numerical computational models. The course will involve classroom lectures, seminar readings, and application of models for operational environmental prediction.
