 Environmental fluid mechanics

The course aims at providing the fundamental concepts to understand the dynamics of geophysical flows and their mathematical and numerical modelling. The focus will be on the mathematical description that allows for representing processes at different scales (from atmosphere and ocean to small water bodies) with different approximations of the same fundamental equations.At the end of the course, the student will be able to:• understand the theoretical aspects of fluid mechanics and transport mechanisms in the environment;• understand the mathematical description of the processes by means of partial differential equations;• interpret the studied processes by means of simplified analytical solutions;• implement some simple numerical schemes to solve idealized problems;• estimate the relevant quantities in realworld problems;• critically approach the use of numerical models for meteorological applications.

 Idraulica ambientale

The course aims at providing the fundamental concepts to understand mass transport processes in the environment (water bodies like rivers and lakes; atmosphere) e their mathematical modelling, with the goal to study problems related with the quality of water (pollution, eutrophication) and air.At the end of the course, the student will be able to:• understand the theoretical aspects of the mass transport mechanisms in the environment;• evaluate the mixing capacity of a water body and estimate the dilution rate of a contaminant;• interpret the studied processes by means of simplified analytical solutions;• critically use a numerical model to study problems related to water or air quality.
