Abstract

A mathematical model has been developed as an idealized formulation to understand the eutrophication status in Masan Bay. The model predictions were in general agreement with field data in simulating the global growth and decay of phytoplankton. The WASP5 model was used for investigation of phytoplakton- nutrient dynamics as well as the comparison with both mathematical and numerical models developed here. The water quality simulation with fine resolution has been performed by a coupled hydrodynamic, transport, and eutrophication model. The hydrodynamic component simulates the main tidally-driven advective flows throughout the Masan Bay and the transport component of the model simulates the movement
