Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN reviews concepts describing water transport time scales flushing time, age, and residence time and illustrates their use for coastal applications. As an example, a methodology to estimate residence time is presented for a constructed wetland cell in Chesapeake Bay, MD with the output of the Coastal Modeling System CMS and the CMS-driven Particle Tracking Model PTM.
