Abstract: Numerical modelling of rivers, estuaries and shallow seas has attracted increasing interest over the last two decades. The models have developed from one dimensional (ID) applications to tidal propagation and flood routing through two and, finally, three dimensional applications to motions ranging from “pseudo-turbulence” to annualmean residual flows. The present account describes the development, over the last five years, of the modelling studies carried out by the author concerning the hydrodynamics of the southern North Sea and River Thames. The objective is to identify those major points which have emerged that may have a wider significance.
