Among the Applications Activities (the application of NASA technological expertise to civil sector problems) at the Langley Research Center are the study of pollution transport in the Coastal Zone and coastal wave conditions. This paper describes the Coastal Zone modeling work being undertaken in support of these Applications Activities. The analytical models described are being developed to provide a predictive capability for pollution transport and wave conditions in the Coastal Zone. The models include: (1) a Continental Shelf circulation model, (2) a North Atlantic circulation model intended for validation of the general ocean circulation models, (3) two pollution dispersal models, and (4) a first-order coastal wave refraction model.
