Applicability of Models in the Field of Environmental Chemistry of the MediterraneanSea [chapter]

J. M. Beckers
2005 Handbook of Environmental Chemistry  
The present chapter highlights the problems facing when modelling the marine environment, in particular for biochemical aspects. It is shown how the marine environment differs from other fluids and how this affects modelling. General modelling approaches are shown and the problem of the vaste range of scales encountered is adressed. In addition to mathematical modelling problems, practical questions of adequate boundary and initial conditions are then further analysed with respect to
