Note(s): Water, salt and heat balance studies are surveyed and summarized within the context of coastal lagoons. The most important geomorphological factors influencing these physical processes are inlet configuration and dimensions, lagoon size and orientation with respect to prevailing winds, and water depth. Results of past water balance studies show that advective transport dominates gains and losses by rainfall, evaporation, surface runoff and groundwater seepage.The final published version of this manuscript is available at http://www.elsevier.com and may be cited as: Smith, N.
