Abstract: Bohai Bay is a shallow semi-enclosed coastal basin located along the north-east coast of China. It covers a large area of about 7000 km2, with the depth of water being less than 10 metres for most part of the basin. Bohai Bay receives industrial and domestic wastewater from several large cities but its capability of tidal flushing is relatively weak. Several detailed studies including field measurement work and numerical modelling study have been undertaken to assess the water quality of Bohai Bay during the last few years. This paper presents some of the prediction results from the numerical modelling study.
