Numerical and diagnostic techniques for modelling stratified coastal seas

Universität Rostock, 2010

Abstract: The thesis provides numerical and diagnostic techniques for studying processes in stratified coastal seas with numerical models. A method for quantifying processes of stratification and mixing in shallow seas is introduced. Furthermore, the thesis analyses discretisation errors in models of larger seas. The new numerical technique of adaptive grids is presented, which reduces discretisation errors in permanently stratified seas effectively.
