Galveston Harbor: factors affecting pollution and pollution monitoring.
Guinasso, N.L., Jr.
MetadataShow full item record
Available data on the hydrodynamics of Galveston Harbor do not provide a firm basis for the prediction of pollutant transport and dispersion in the harbor. Field measurements of the hydrodynamics of the harbor should be undertaken and should by designed to test the validity of existing models of the harbor, both mathematical and physical. Needed improvements of existing mathematical models of Galveston Harbor include an increase of the horizontal resolution and treatment of vertical density stratification. A pollution monitoring system should include regular surveillance, fixed monitoring stations, and cooperation with local agencies.
