A THREEDIMENSIONAL MODEL OF A HOMOGENEOUS ESTUARY

Jurgen Sundermann

Abstract


Basing on HANSEN's hydrodynamical-numerical method a threedimensional model of wind and tidally generated processes in a homogeneous estuary is developed. The model includes an arbitrary depth distribution and the simulation of a boundary layer near the bottom. Some numerical examples demonstrate the applicability for practical purposes.
