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.

Water quality modeling in complicated estuarine areas
Author : Yu Dai, W. Deguan
With the frequent development and utilization of estuarine areas, there is a widespread concern about the issue of sustainable development of estuarine resources. Owing to economic development in areas surrounding estuary, harbor, shipping, alluvial plain and fishery are booming. As such, many problems occur because of the boom. Consequently, in order to keep the balance of ecological system in estuarine areas, estuarine resources, aquatic animals and plants, and fishery resources should be utilized reasonably. The hydrodynamic environment and water quality environment should be studied and analyzed in scientific and systemic methods, which provides good suggestion in utilization and protection of estuarine resources from an ecological point view. This paper simulates hydrodynamic environment and water quality environment in Pearl River estuary. A coupling model is developed, which combines hydrodynamic model and water quality model. The hydrodynamic model and water quality model are two-dimensional and characterized as a set of control volumes. Upon this, the dialectical relation between hydrodynamics and water quality is thoroughly discussed. The results seem reasonable and the model seems robust in simulation of the hydrodynamics and water quality in the estuaries and further research.
