In this paper, the numerical model and its use in testing the applic-ability of the air curtain method in Strymon River.   Analytical models of salinity distribution are simple and efficient tools to study salt intrusion in alluvial estuaries since they require minimum data for their application. In this paper, an analytical model based on Savenije theory is used to assess salinity variation in the Sebou river by:

A one-dimensional mathematical model is developed which describes the longitudinal concentration distribution of a pollutant in an estuary. The importance of including the tidal velocity in the advective term of the mass balance equation is emphasized.

Mathematical model for the prediction of unsteady salinity intrusion in estuaries by M. Llewellyn Thatcher Download PDF EPUB FB2

Changes in salinity intrusion limits in the estuaries, salinity stratification, and circulation in intertidal flats and estuaries were evaluated by comparing model results under the existingmore» Model results showed that loss of intertidal flats results in an increase in salinity intrusion, stronger mixing, and a phase shift in salinity and velocity fields in the bay front areas.

Personal Author: Thatcher, M. Llewellyn; Harleman, Donald R. F.; Corporate Authors: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sea Grant Project Office, Published Date: Series. Abstract. In many cases, the salinity intrusion processes of estuaries are dominantly governed by the amount of fresh water discharge, the density difference between fresh water and sea water, and the tidal amplitude.

For the modeling and prediction of salt intrusion, however, predictive equations are needed that provide estimates of essential parameters that describe tidal mixing.

But fortunately also these can be found in alluvial estuaries [ Savenije, ], probably as a result of the same energetic optimum that is responsible for the exponential shape of estuaries, but this is still by: Comparison of the obtained results indicated that the model of Van der Burgh () is the most suitable empirical model for prediction of the salinity intrusion length in the Bahmanshir estuary.

The one-dimensional salt intrusion model ofSavenije (b) makes use of the Van der Burgh and dispersion equa-tions to represent the longitudinal variation of the salinity.

The Van der Burgh and dispersion coefficient at the ocean boundary are obtained by calibration of the simulated salin-ity curve to je(b) established.

Introduction [2] The estuarine salinity structure is a result of the interplay between the buoyancy flux from riverine inflow, advection by tides and the estuarine circulation, and mixing.

Accurate numerical predictions of the time‐dependent salinity field thus depend critically on the model representation of tidal and subtidal motions as well as the subgrid‐scale turbulence closure. FIG. 3Sediment Transport and Salinity Intrusion Models in the lower estuary is very small most of the heat lost to the atmosphere in the model occurs in this region because of its large surface area.
