Environmental Hydrodynamics

Stephen Henderson


The Environmental Hydrodynamics Laboratory at WSU Vancouver examines the physics governing natural water flows, mixing, and sediment transport in lakes, estuaries and the coastal ocean.  To study these topics we take a variety of approaches, ranging from extensive field measurements to computer simulations and original theoretical models.  In the long run, an improved understanding of Environmental Hydrodynamics might help managers to plan for such problems as pollution, flooding, and coastal erosion, and might help engineers to design better coastal structures (such as jetties and breakwaters).
