The regulatory requirements imposed by the Habitats Directive (EU 93/43/EEC) require the Environment Agency for England and Wales (EA) to review consented discharges and determine whether they are compliant with Environmental Quality Standards (EQS). Since the EQS are annual averages, model predictions, and sample comparisons, should be made on an annual average basis. Advection and dispersion of metal contaminants in the Severn Estuary were computed using a coupled 1-D and 2-D hydrodynamic… CONTINUE READING
