Coastal physical processes in the Great Lakes / by: Yerubandi R. Rao. : En13-5/05-180E-PDF

"Inland Seas and Large Lake Systems are subjected to many of the same forcing as coastal oceans and serve as model basins for understanding the complex coastal ocean dynamics. They are also somewhat simpler to study than the coastal oceans since they are enclosed and large enough to include the Coriolis forcing. In large lake systems such as the North American Great Lakes the absence of salinity and tidal forcing simplifies the dynamics even further. The coastal zone dynamics is complex and highly variable, where interrelated biological, chemical, geological and physical processes are occurring simultaneously and is strongly influenced by the climatic conditions. An understanding of the coastal physical processes is essential to develop science based integrated management of coastal oceans"--Abstract.
