Verification of a Three Dimensional Advection Dispersion Model using Dye Release Experiment
MetadataShow full item record
The study aims to investigate transport processes within the entrance of a coastal lagoon through estimating the advectiondispersion coefficients of the estuary. To this end, an extensive observational data set including water level variation and current has been used for the hydrodynamic calibration of the model. Simulation of water quality variation with time requires mathematical modelling based on the advection and dispersion phenomenon. The advection-dispersion model is setup using a MIKE3 software platform. The model is calibrated using data obtained through monitoring the dilution and movement of a tracer (Rhodamine WT), which is introduced into the water column during a number of experiments at various locations within the study area.
