A one-dimensional, steady-state, nonidealized technique for estuarine analysis and its application to the Houston Ship Channel.
MetadataShow full item record
Two analytical, computerized models which analyze water quality in an estuarine system under steady-state conditions are developed. The models are applicable to homogenous estuaries, highly stratified estuaries, and partially stratified estuaries; the models are applicable to non-idealized estuaries (i.e., flow rates, velocities, depths, channel cross-sections, segment volumes, and diffusion coefficients are not necessarily constant throughout the estuary); and the models are capable of handling numerous waste loadings applied at points throughout the estuary. Model One is used to compute the ultimate waste dispersion pattern and resulting dissolved oxygen profile.
