Resum
Water renewal and mixing are highly related to the evolution of the ecological status in harbour areas and are crucial for environmental harbour management. For the first time, these processes have been studied in the Barcelona harbour with a high resolution 3D hydrodynamic model. This harbour is representative of a semi-enclosed domain with a complex coastline in a micro-tidal environment (like most Mediterranean harbours). The tracking of numerical Lagrangian particles deployed in the flow was...
