Abstract

During summer 1994 an experiment was undertaken in the area of Zadar and Pasman Channels in order to determine the best position for sewage outfalls of cities of Zadar and Biograd. The channels are about 50 kilometres long and 2-6 kilometres wide with depth varying from 8 to 50 metres. The whole area is very attractive and favourable for the tourism. Due to basin configuration the major measurements were placed at the entrances and at the expected best outfall positions. The experiment included the measurements of physical, chemical and bioecological parameters, however, this paper is focused on the physical dynamics and processes which may play a role to the contamination of the region.
