Water quality analysis in marinas is essential to proper planning and operation. It is therefore necessary to evaluate the net volume of seawater that enters with each tide cycle as well as the concentration of diluted substances contained in the water. This is based upon hydrodynamics and advection-diffiision analysis, which can also serve to determine low velocity zones and the major concentrations of undesirable substances. Water quality is evaluated by the differing spill over substances, the diluted oxygen concentration and its biochemical oxygen demand. Some additional ways to improve water quality in marinas are also suggested.
