Abstract

A preliminary study on an ecohydrodynamic model for the environmental assessment of a very large floating structure or Mega-Float in a bay is presented. The model consists of two parts, a hydrodynamic model and a marine ecosystem. Tidal currents and steady currents by wind and density anomaly are calculated in a bay with/without a Mega-Float in the hydrodynamic model. A marine ecosystem composed of nutrients, marine plankton and organic matter floating freely in the bay is combined with the hydrodynamic model. Numerical calculations including those of a Mega-Float in Tokyo Bay are demonstrated and the results are discussed.
