Principles of Fluid Flow and Surface Waves
          in Rivers, Estuaries, Seas and Oceans (update, 900 pages)
          This book is the most extensive book on flow and waves in open waters and

          River and tidal flow are described in great detail. A simple analytical solution
          of tidal flow in funnel-type estuaries is given.
          Various simple modelling tools are included to compute river and tidal flow.
