Abstract: Two-and three-dimensional numerical simulations of hydrodynamics and transport processes have been carried out in the Unterhavel river using the TELEMAC modeling system. For mean flow conditions, the hydrodynamics are characterized by minimal water level fluctuations (~1 mm) and very small flow velocities being less than 1 cm/s in large parts of the domain and up to a few centimeters in narrow passages. For these conditions, a two-dimensional approach is suitable for flow and transport. Threedimensional flow fields are caused by heavy winds, and have locally a strong influence on the flow and also an influence on the tracer spreading.
