NUMERICAL MODELING OF MORPHODYNAMIC CHANGES IN THE JADE ESTUARY – GERMANY

Almut Gelfort, Florian Ladage, Oliver Stoschek

Abstract


Based on a case study sediment transport was modeled numerically for the Jade estuary. Due to the construction of the JadeWeserPort the morphology in the area is undergoing a relocation. The study gives an overview on various studies undertaken as a consultant tool to help designers and decisions makers. A hydrodynamic as well as a morphodynamic numerical model was set up. Although the input data on the morphodynamic part was limited, the results showed that the tool at hand is capable of producing reliable results in the field of modeling sediment transport.
