Abstract

Performance comparisons of the Random Choice Method (RCM) with conventional advection schemes to compute simple cases of the Mass Transport Equation in estuaries are conducted. Test cases treated here include one-dimensional front propagation and advection of a rotary pulse. Both cases represent extreme conditions of the mass transport in estuaries, i.e., absence of physical diffusion. The RCM is capable of producing numerical solut
