Particle tracks Brouwerseiland

Brouwers Island is a land reclamation project in the west of Lake Grevelingen. Currents in and around Brouwers Island are originated by the wind and a limited tide. With the numerical model FINEL2D these currents are modelled.

Stagnant water inside Brouwers Island might be a problem. To investigate the possibility of stagnant water the currents are modelled for a (very low) constant wind speed of 2 m/s. With use of particle tracking the circulation of the water is made visible.
