As of today the Virrilá Estuary located in Piura, Peru, is polluted with high nitrate and chlorine concentrations. Because of that the mariculture activity of the towns and cities located in that estuary are significantly affected (which is the basis of their economy). Recent field measurements indicate that the nitrate concentrations are related to the suspended sediment concentrations whereas the chlorine distribution is directly associated with the flow recirculation patterns. In order to shed light on the transport dynamics of these contaminants a two-dimensional shallow water equations numerical model that can predict suspended sediment transport and flow recirculation was developed.
