In November 2001 HR Wallingford undertook numerical modelling studies as part of the Poole Bay coastal defence strategy study. The specific scope of work comprised studies to improve the knowledge of sediment transport patterns under waves and tidal current at Hook Sands and Poole Harbour entrance under spring and neap tides and storm events. In addition there were tasks aimed at modelling the effects of future dredging activity at Poole Harbour entrance and to provide information to feed into a conceptual sediment budget model for Poole Bay. This report describes the studies undertaken to set up and calibrate a new inner model covering Poole Bay and Harbour, and to analyse the present sediment transport processes over this study area. Results of the numerical model studies were presented to the Poole Bay and Harbour Coastal Group at a series of meetings over the course of the study period. This information has been used by the Poole Bay and Harbour Coastal Group to devise a future coastal defence strategy for the area.
