Abstract : A review of modeling the hydrodynamics and solute transport processes in tidal canals and marinas is presented. There is still much to be learned to enable the engineer to design such systems to meet a rational set of design criteria. a program of measurements to understand the fundamental physics of these systems is proposed, and the development of numerical models to address research and design needs is outlined.
