Modelling the Dispersion of Pollutants in Relation to Microalgae Blooms and Fish Contamination in Jakarta Bay

Jakarta Bay is exposed to a high load of pollutants mainly deriving from land-based activities in the Jakarta Metropolitan Area (JMA). The primary goal of the project is to study the transport and dispersion of anthropogenic nutrients (N, P) from the JMA using a combination of field measurements and numerical modelling.
