POM Simulation Studies in Pearl River Delta

The PREPP data simulation systems consist of three models, they are hydrodynamic model, sediment transport model and water quality model.

Based on simulation capability, simulation effectiveness, running speed and computational coast consideration, PREPP chose the POM as the basic hydrodynamic model, a tracer type model (Boudrean, 1986 Pohlman and Puls, 1994, Dong et al, 1997) for the sediment transport, and a process-based water quality model.

The three models are interlinked. The coupling of the POM hydrodynamic model, with the tracer sediment transport model and the water quality model is described in following figure:



The region of interest for PREPP includes the Pearl River Estuary and its coastal waters near the shore. The data output of the models cover from about 112oE to 115oE and from 21oN to 23oN, as shown below:



Our numerical modeling software outputs the following data:

  • Vertically Averaged Current and Elevation
  • Residual Current
  • Residual Elevation
  • Water Temperature
  • Salinity
  • Dissolved Oxygen
  • Chlorophyll
  • Dissolved Total Nitrogen
  • Dissolved Total Phosphorus
