As part of a research effort by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to study the dispersion of pollutants in aquatic systems, a numerical model has been developed that is capable of realistically describing physical transport in lakes, embayments, nearshore marine coastal areas, and riverine and thermal outfall plumes. The model is formulated from the time-dependent, three-dimensional convective-diffusive equation. The model is designed to be compatible with a separate time-dependent, three-dimensional, variable-density, hydrodynamic model. The details of the hydrodynamic model have been documented in a separate report. The report provides the documentation for the computer program for the numerical model. Three detailed case studies are presented to demonstrate the utility of the model. These case studies are applications to Lake Erie, an idealized lake, and a surface thermal discharge.
