Abstract: Water quality monitoring of the Weser estuary is carried out in conjunction with numerical modelling of the transport processes. For analytical and prognostical studies, and especially to test the influence of isolated discharges of effluents on the water quality of the Weser estuary, a time-dependent cross-section-averaged model is used. Comparison of model results with measurements and case studies concerning nutrient, oxygen and temperature situations will be given.
