The numerical assessment of the transport of conservative / non-conservative tracers represents a key component in the environmental assessment of coastal developments. RPS MetOcean in-house modelling capability includes the transport, advection and diffusion of tracers including temperature, salinity as well as cohesive and non-cohesive sediments.

RPS MetOcean regularly apply the output from a variety of hydrodyjnamic models to transport tracers in the ocean. The methodology has broad reaching applications including.

The suite of dispersion models available for use include:
