water level, velocity, temperature, salinity, density, pressure, turbulent energy, wave heights & forces, roller & breaker energy, sediment fractions, bed levels, concentrations (chloride / salinity, coliform bacteria (E. Coli, faecal and total), oxygen and BOD, temperature, organic C, N, P and Si, inorganic phosphorus, ammonium, nitrate and silica, algae (diatoms, greens, bluegreens), heavy metals, PCB-153, HCB, lindane, fluoranthene and benzo(a)pyrene)
Describe length scale and resolution constraints
length scales of modelled domains: decimeter (lab scale) to global; typical grid resolution 10 m - 10 km
Describe time scale and resolution constraints
minutes (time scales of eddies) to centuries (long-term morphology)
Describe any numerical limitations and issues
relatively mild stability and accuracy constraints (depending on application) due to implicit numerical schemes
