Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


This paper briefly describes the analysis of pollution inputs into the area considered and the application of modelling techniques to quantify the hydrodynamics and related transport phenomena as a basis for analyzing the dispersion of pollutants through the southern North Sea. The results of this study are used for a tentative assessment of North Sea pollution and to defined priorities in coastal water pollution research and control in the Netherlands.
