Due to coal unloading, certain quantities of this material arrive at the sea floor, and may pollute the beaches. This study provides a theoretical analysis and numerical simulations of coal fall out migration. Experiments carried out in the framework of this study verify the application of the model developed in the theoretical analysis. This model stems from the assumption that the migration of the coal fall out is basically a turbulent diffusion process.
