It is practically impossible to conduct long-term water quality measurements across an entire lake. To overcome this problem, simulation results can be used as measurements in the analysis of cross sectional salt flux. A three-dimensional hydrodynamic model is applied to study the dynamics of water and salt exchange through cross-sections. The model is validated with field data. Then the model results are used to study the characteristics of water and salt exchange [1]. The goals of this approach are to examine the mechanisms that drive water and salt transport in estuaries and coastal lakes, and how they are influenced by different forcing conditions. The approach can also be applied in the study of pollutants.
