A two-dimensional convective-dispersion transport model is described which provides spatial and temporal variations in the concentration of a conservative constituent introduced into a shallow well-mixed estuary. The solution is accomplished through a multi-stage implicit method and the model utilizes as basic input instantaneous tidal velocities, depths and dispersion coefficients computed from an operational mathematical tidal hydrodynamics model. The transport model is capable of accepting slug, continuous or intermittent releases at one or more points within the tidal flow system. The application of the model is demonstrated by slug and continuous releases of conservative materials into high and low tidal velocity areas in Matagorda Bay, Texas. (Author)
