Abstract
    This paper describes how salinity was introduced as an active tracer in the 3D TELEMAC model of the Scheldt estuary. Boundary conditions are discussed and model results are compared with measured data. The role of the parameters: velocity diffusivity, tracer diffusion coefficient and numerical diffusion and their effect on the salinity field are shown. Next to the salinity data, tracer data from the model will be used to determine dispersion coefficients for a 1D ecological box model of our project partner, the University of Antwerp.
