In recent years the problem of aquatic pollution caused by potential future reclamation and urban growth has been receiving increasing attention. Several water quality modelling studies have been conducted by overseas consultants as part of the strategic planning studies on behalf of the Hong Kong Government. At present a research project is being undertaken by the Department of Civil & Structural Engineering of the Hong Kong Polytechnic to develop a numerical model for quantitative assessment of the effects of waste disposal on the aquatic environment. The first step in water quality modelling is to determine the tidal currents. This paper describes the modelling of the dry season tidal current in Deep Bay using a finite difference model developed by Leendertse.
