The main content of this useful and interesting title dedicated to the modeling of marine systems has actually been emerged from the proceedings of one of the international conferences on this subject, arranged by the science committee of NATO within the formal framework of their efforts in promoting the progress of marine science by means of the international cooperation. The decision to compile and release this book was made straight after subject conference had completed. The ultimate intention of this volume is not actually the reproduction of the informal volume of the conference, but rather the development and further introduction of the valuable and useful guidelines to the theoretical and experimental work, i.e. the professional survey, via the specially commissioned documents, of the present situation in modeling of these systems. The documents contributing to the subject survey, are in fact based on the relevant publications. The final aim of the book is to duly assemble the different elements of a very first manual on modeling the marine systems. The book is arranged in two halves, first focusing on the technical concepts and applicable techniques of the modeling, and the second dealing with the state-of-the art of marine systems modeling, covering all technical aspects involved.
