IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

MODELING WATER EXCHANGE IN CIGU LAGOON, TAIWAN
Author : TING-CHIEH LIN , SHIH-CHUN HSIAO CHIH-MIN HSIEH & PENGZHI LIN
The water exchange capacity in Cigu lagoon (the largest lagoon in Taiwan) is investigated using a two-dimensional depth-averaged shallow water model coupling to an Eulerian solute transport model. Water exchange capacity is evaluated by computing local residence time with a consideration on the effects of sand-barrier morphological changes in 2005 and 2012. Results show that the LRT in lagoon is heterologous with a LRT generally smaller than 6 days close to inlets and greater than 16 days elsewhere. The overall flushing capacity in lagoon is around 36% and 44% after 16 days computations.
