This presentation discusses:
1. Simulation of current, temperature and salinity for the calendar year 2010 using FVCOM.
2. Simulation of water quality variables for the calendar year 2010 using UGRCA, including inorganic nutrients, phytoplankton, chlorophyll and organic substances.
3. Assessment of dispersal of the MWRA outfall effluent, both in the horizontal and vertical.
4. Projection analysis on the possible influence of the MWRA outfall on water quality and ecosystem function in MB.
