coastal modelling suites are routinely applied to a wide range of hydrodynamic and water quality studies,
with their application frequently underpinned through near-field
assessments carried out with the US-EPA supported CORMIX model.

Water Quality, Dredge Dispersal, Oil Dispersal,
Undertaken in Delft3D or Mike by DHI, both of which
are market leading, state-of-the art, comprehensive
software packages. Coastal Science has
eighteen years continuous experience of:
Coastal and estuarine hydrodynamic modelling
Coastal and estuarine water quality modelling
spill & blowout modelling
Dredge dispersal modelling.
of drill cuttings can also be undertaken, with CORMIX 8.0 GTS,
meets the drill cuttings and muds modelling
requirements of offshore oil and gas drilling operations.
CORMIX is a US EPA-supported
near field model and decision support system for environmental
impact assessment of mixing zones resulting from continuous point
source discharges, and has been applied by Coastal Science to
consideration of numerous marine discharge scenarios.
Clients include major
utility companies and fish farms. Projects are also undertaken on an associate basis for major consultancies throughout the UK
