Estuarine Ecohydrology focuses on the principal components of an estuary. The book demonstrates how one can quantify an estuarine ecosystem's ability to cope with human stresses. The theories, models, and real-world solutions covered will serve as a toolkit for designing a management plan for the ecologically sustainable development of an estuary. This book is organized into seven chapters dealing with topics such as estuarine water circulation; estuarine sediment dynamics; tidal wetlands; estuarine food webs; and ecohydrology models and solutions. Although each chapter contains rigorous specialist knowledge, it is presented in an accessible way that encourages multi-disciplinary collaboration between such fields as hydrology, ecology and mathematical modeling. Estuarine Ecohydrology is appropriate for use as a textbook and as a reference for researchers; advanced undergraduate and graduate students in marine biology, oceanography, coastal management, and coastal engineering; coastal developers; resources managers, shipping operators; and those involved in estuarine fisheries and sustainable development communities.

"A brilliant synthesis of the state of the art in estuarine ecohydrology..." --Maciej Zalewski, Director, UNESCO's European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology "A most valuable contribution to our international activities for coastal seas environments." --Masahiko Inatsugi, Adviser on External Relations, International Center for the Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas "[It] provides a deep understanding of the dynamical processes through an ecohydrological approach acting on estuaries." --Dr. Gerardo M. E. Perillo, Co-Chair SCOR-LOICZ Working Group 122 "Its perspectives are truly global in nature, encompassing different views from the developed world." --Dr. Hartwig Kremer, CEO LOICZ IPO "Indeed, Eric Wolanski has brought together a disparate set of disciplines in a way that makes remarkable good sense: ecohydrology. . . His book will remain close by on my desk!" -Brian R. Allanson, Rhodes University, South Africa in Journal of Coastal Research
