After the Chernobyl accident the studies of the longshore sediment transport in the Black Sea have got new applications connected with a marine pollution problem. The method to calculate the longshore sediment transport rate for the mild slope sand beaches of the North-West part of the Black Sea have been developed on the base of experimental data. The proposed formula is used to calculate longshore radionuclide transport rate in the surf zone in this area. The two-dimensional model to simulate depth averaged fields of the sediment and radionuclides in the coastal areas is developed. The structure of the submodels describing the wave field, currents, sediment and radionuclide transport are considered.
