Abstract

Two wave models, an average over the period and an intra period, are applied to derive the wave characteristics in the inshore zone. A wave induced current model is used for the prediction of the velocity field considering the effects of the secondary current. The surf zone current field is used for the application of the advection-diffusion model by means of which the transport of a well-mixed, surface and bottom pollutant in and outside the surf zone can be modelled. 1 Introduction Numerical models based on the 2-D horizontal Fickian advection-diffusion equation are widely used in coastal engineering for the simulation of various phenomena such as oil spill time-space evolution, prediction of poll
