By A. Fares, A. El-Kadi

Coastal watersheds vary from others by means of their specific gains, includingproximity to the sea, climate and rainfall styles, subsurface features,and land covers. Land use alterations and competing wishes for useful water and land assets are targeted to such watersheds. floor water is a valued source of important financial, ecologic, cultural, and aesthetic value. Streams offer irrigation water and will be the most resource of consuming water in a few areas. Streams additionally supply very important habitats for lots of special local species. Water caliber of receiving waters, reminiscent of estuaries, bays, and nearshore waters, are negatively impacted by means of circulate chemical, organic, and sediments. Coastal groundwater aquifers are negatively tormented by land use alterations, resulting in diminished recharge and elevated chemical use, and danger of saltwater intrusion. restricted water assets and issues concerning water caliber necessitate the necessity for bestmanagement practices.

The chapter also discussed the close connection between GIS and watershed models and benefits of integrating them. Distributed watershed models take advantages of GIS’s significant role in facilitating spatial-data preparation and analysis because of its ability to store, retrieve, manipulate, analyze, and map geographic data. As a result, watershed hydrologists were able to generate high-quality maps incorporating model output and geographic entities further enabling visual support during decision-making processes.

Several reviews of solute-transport modeling have been written, such as those by Mercer and Faust [44], Anderson and Woessner [45] and Zheng and Bennett [46]. Freeze and Cherry [47] cover many of the transport equations and offer clear descriptions of many transport mechanisms. Diffusion, dispersion, and advection are the basic processes by which solute moves from one place to another. Diffusion is a molecular-scale process, which causes the spreading of the solute due to concentration gradients and random motion.
