Poole Harbour on the south coast of England is in frequent use both as a commercial port and for leisure activities.

Hydraulic models provide an effective means for evaluating some of these effects and their application to the Town Quay Boat Haven development is described in this paper. The modelling carried out for Poole provides a good illustration of the use of hydraulic models in Environmental Impact Assessment (ElA). The techniques used are generally applicable to this type of assessment for harbour and mar
