Abstract: The transport of fine sediments due to currents and wind waves in estuaries and lakes have been studied by means of field experiments, laboratory experiments, and a comprehensive three-dimensional numerical model of hydrodynamics and sediment transport. This paper emphasizes the development of a comprehensive hydrodynamics and sediment transport model, EHSM3D. Application of the model to simulate the sediment transport in a large shallow lake, Lake Okeechobee, and an estuary, Tampa Bay, will also be briefly presented.
