Application of mathematical models to the coastal waters of Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a densely populated coastal city with many large-scale infrastructure developments to support its economic growth. There is an increasing demand for new land for residential and commercial developments and for relieving traffic congestion. In the past, most of the reclamation was carried out in or near Victoria Harbour. More recently reclamation has extended to the New Territories and Lantau Island. Hong Kong's growing population not only poses a need for new land but also increases pollution loads entering coastal waters. Together with the rapid economic development and increase in population of neighbouring cities around the Pearl River Delta, the effect of degradation of water quality on the complex ecological system in the region is a concern...
