Abstract:

Accurate numerical simulation of the transport and fate of constituents in coastal waters is made difficult by the general inability to adequately specify open-water boundary conditions for the hydrodynamic model. Instead, an observational model may provide sufficient detail to permit sound engineering judgement.
