Sammanfattning (abstract):
Guide to Process Based Modeling of Lakes and Coastal Seas is based on a series of lectures delivered to students at advanced and Ph.D. levels at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Gothenburg. It is intended to provide the reader with a scientific understanding and well-tested computer code for successful aquatic studies. The intended reader should have some knowledge of geophysical fluid dynamics, numerical analysis, and computer programming. The structure of the Guide allows readers to develop their understanding gradually. Incorporating a range of exercises with solutions, the Guide is a comprehensive teaching aid. Learning via a combination of reading, analyzing observations, and building computer models is a very rewarding process. This approach also makes it possible for the learner to follow scientific developments, test new ideas, and evaluate research results. The second edition was prepared some years after the first one. Interesting progress in modeling coastal seas was made during this period, and concern has increased as to the importance of considering multiple stressors acting on the seas. Coastal seas are under severe human-induced pressures, such as global climate change, excess nutrient release, pollution, ammunition dumping, overfishing, and various engineering-based modifications, including the strong growth of coastal settlement, hydro- and nuclear power plants, massive wind farms, and various bridge and tunnel crossings. At the same time, coastal areas are used for many purposes, such as intensive agriculture, shipping, and recreation. Ocean acidification has emerged as a key research priority for marine science, and only recently, this has been addressed in coastal seas. The combination of acidification and increasing amounts of anoxic waters associated with eutrophication puts severe stress on the marine environment. The detection and attribution of anthropogenic changes in coastal seas are therefore crucial, and modeling tools are increasingly important. In the second edition, the presentation of biogeochemical aspects has been rewritten and Sect. 4.8, “Modeling the Dynamics of CO2 in Redox Environments,” has been added. Modeling the marine CO2–O2 system makes climate change and eutrophication studies possible and is fundamental to understanding the Earth system. The second edition also includes new sections on detection and attribution and on modeling future changes, as well as improved exercises, updated software, and datasets.
