Part of: Estuarine and Coastal Modeling


The paper reports on the modeling study of deep water outfall plumes in the east Australian coastal ocean. The primary aims of the modeling were to provide estimates of plume condition and the region of plume impact under a range of oceanographic and meteorologic conditions; understand the physical processes of effluent transport; rationalize and assist in the planning of appropriate data collection; and assist planners in upgrading sewage systems.
