Abstract: Modern harbour engineering considers environmental issues of the harbour basin and ad- jacent coastal areas. The expansion of Nea Moudania harbour, in northern Greece, offers an example of a holistic investigation in harbour hydrodynamics. The objective of this work is the study of the circulation and flushing time of the harbour waters. Field measurements were carried out by means of current and water level recorders. Meteorological data were also collected. The data analysis led to: (a) currents of a few m/s up to 0.20 m/s inside the inner harbour basin, forming mainly 3 eddies depended on the prevailing meteorological conditions, and (b) flushing flow rate estimates of 2–9 /s with corresponding basin renewal times on the order of a day. The water level recordings indi- cated that the mean tidal amplitude was roughly 15 cm. A 2D hydrodynamic model was applied in parallel to complement the field measurements. The combined field measurements and numerical modelling explained the hydrodynamic conditions in the harbour, leading to important indications with regard to environmental issues of the harbour.
