Key Features

  • Introduces the principles of fluid dynamics, follows with simple applications, and builds to more complex applications experienced in the field.

  • Offers a unique, authoritative, and accessible treatment of the subject.

  • Includes appropriate mathematical expressions without overburdening the reader with difficult or extensive notation.


Environmental Fluid Dynamics: Flow Processes, Scaling, Equations of Motion, and Solutions to Environmental Flows provides an introduction to the principles of environmental fluid dynamics, i.e., nature’s use of air and water to transport and transform waste into nutrients for various organisms. Starting with a discussion of the basics of fluid dynamics for undergraduates, the book moves on to more detailed material for graduate students and specialists in environmental engineering and/or science, physical limnology, estuarine dynamics, and coastal oceanography. Topics covered include equations of motion, fluid viscosity, environmental hydraulics, mixing and dispersion, surface waves, and environmental flows. The material presented here is based on the author’s 40 years of teaching fluid dynamics at Berkeley, Caltech, Karlsruhe, Padova, and Western Australia. The book provides a basic overview, while specialists needing more in-depth information can to turn to advanced texts in their specific areas of interest.


students (senior undergraduates, graduates, researchers) of earth science, civil engineering, environmental engineering, hydraulics, hydrology, physical limnology; a broad cross-section of scientists and engineers working in similar fields

Quotes and reviews

"Imberger explains some of the tools for waste cycling, rather than disposal, where all three stages of the process are given equal importance."--Reference and Research Book News, December 2012
