Abstract
    At the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), several research projects are carried out on the concentration andtransport of Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) in the Southern North Sea and Wadden Sea. So far the focus has been on field datacollection and analysis, but in recent years a numerical modeling capacity has been set up, using the GETM/GOTM model. Theunderlying purpose is twofold. Firstly, a numerical model can provide insight into the hydrodynamics and SPM transport,complementing field observations, helping to interpret and identify the key physical mechanisms. Secondly, it provides a much-neededtool in ecological studies, forming the basic physical core on which the transport of for instance nutrients and larvae depends; thus,these kinds of numerical models provide a valuable bridge in interdisciplinary studies. First steps in the use of the model are reportedhere, offering a synopsis of its potential
