This two-credit (2 ECTs) course include the following topic:

  • Classification of estuaries
  • Dynamic of tides in estuaries
  • Salinity dispersion in estuaries
  • Analytical modelling of salinity intrusion (Savenije's formula)
  • Numerical modelling of 1-D salinity intrusion in a river mouth network


The HEC-RAS software package is used for simulating the dynamics of saltwater intrusion.
