The integrated model is finally applied to simulate the hydro-environmental processes in the Loughor Estuary to find out the contribution of different pollution sources on the receiving water nutrient concentration levels, and the influences of pollutant discharging schemes and temperature. The results show that the refined model is accurate and provides a valuable state-of-the-art novel tool for predicting improved nutrient concentration distributions in estuarine and coastal waters.
