Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87

Abstract:

This paper briefly describes the analysis of pollution inputs into the area considered and the application of modelling techniques to quantify the hydrodynamics and related transport phenomena as a basis for analyzing the dispersion of pollutants through the southern North Sea. The results of this study are used for a tentative assessment of North Sea pollution and to defined priorities in coastal water pollution research and control in the Netherlands.
