Description 
Summary

Environmental survey of Broadmeadow Estuary, Dublin, Ireland 1991: environmental assessment and mathematical modelling of water quality and movement in connection with positioning of sewage outfalls. Included reports on socio-economic aspects and wildlife and surveys of water quality, currents and benthic sediments. Environmental survey of Rogerstown Estuary, Dublin, Ireland 1992: environmental assessment and mathematical modelling of water quality and movement in connection with leachate from a landfill site situated at the head of an estuary which is a national nature reserve. Included reports on socio- economic aspects and wildlife plus surveys of water quality, currents and benthic fauna.
