Numerical modeling of pollutant transport in estuaries

Abstract

A robust numerical solution to the pollutant transport phenomenon in an estuary is presented. The fractional step algorithm is employed to split the physical process into convection step and dispersion and decay step. The numerical model has been verified rigorously on simplified rectangular channel problems and also applied to a real estuary in Hong Kong.
