Approximately 100 models of water and waste movement in tidal bays and estuaries have been reviewed and their predictive capability and limitations have been examined. The review provides the detailed analysis of different models within the same classification. By using this review in conjunction with the classification scheme and the sequence of selection questions given in Proc. Paper 11643, the most appropriate model for a particular task may be selected.
