Abstract

Even when sediments in general are not properly pollutants, they can act like it in estuarine zones changing the equilibrium of many particular ecosystems. It is particularity important considering and predicting fast changes which can be the most harmful. Most of such fast changes are due to human activities and for that reason if predicted in time they can be avoided. This paper proposes a methodology to follow in order to make useful measurements and modelling with low cost. The equations and the variables The first equations to be used are the classical Navier Stokes the pre- sentation most suited for our purposes is like the one used by Tzabiras [4]: ^
