Abstract or Summary
  • A digital computer model was developed to simulate the time and space distribution of a dissolved pollutant in an estuary. The program is basically a one-dimensional finite-difference model, but two dimensions can be represented by attaching together several one-dimensional channels. The influence of convection, dispersion and decay are included in the model. The time scale is based on increments of less than one tidal cycle so that intertidal velocities are represented. A sensitivity analysis was conducted on the convection portion of the model and several tables and graphs are included to indicate the nature and magnitude of numerical errors associated with the model. A method for correcting these errors is also presented. A tracer study was conducted on the Yaquina Estuary, Newport, Oregon and results are compared with two computer model simulations.
