Abstract: Particulate and dissolved pollutant transport rates are predicted using a pollutant transport modeling system. The latter is a finite element model capable of simulating three-dimensional transport and interaction of cohesive sediments and inorganic pollutants in rivers and estuaries. This modeling system includes a hydrodynamic module, cohesive sediment transport module, and both dissolved and particulate pollutant transport modules. The modeling system was used to simulate sediment and pollutant transport in a 11.3 km long partially stratified tidal river.
