A Survey of Three-Dimensional Numerical Estuarine Modelsby Ralph T. Cheng, U.S. Geological Survey, United States,
Peter E. Smith, U.S. Geological Survey, United States,
Abstract: This paper surveys the existing 3-D estuarine hydrodynamic and solute transport models by a review of the commonly used assumptions and approximations, and by an examination of the methods of solution. The model formulations, methods of solution, and known applications are surveyed and summarized in tables. In conclusion, the authors present their modeling philosophy and suggest future research needs.
