Final report in a series on modeling Jamaica Bay, New York. The computer program provided in this report can be used for other investigations if the user is satisfied that all the approximations in the model are applicable in his case. It is not a generalized model which can be used for a certain class of estuaries and coastal seas; it is limited in its boundary conditions, and changes are required if the model boundary is not on the left side of the model array. The program in its present form can be used to compute the flow and pollutant distributions in well-mixed estuaries and coastal seas. (See also RM-6230, R-708, R-1009.)
