Numerical simulations of tide and tidal current for the effect of the new port on Saemangeum area were carried out based on finely resolved meshes and integral tide-surge-wave model of the whole Yellow Sea and also for a compact model optimized for the field operation. The resulting modelling system can be used for hindcasting (prediction) the tide-surge-wave coupled environments at complex coastline, shallow water and fine-grained sediment area like areas around Korean Peninsula. We investigated and discussed the changes of tidal residual current, maximum bottom shear stress and tidal energy dissipation due to the new port for Saemangeum area where the construction of new large port is being built.
