Abstract : This paper deals with the concept of confinement of paralic ecosystems. It is based on a recent paper that presents a modelling procedure in order to compute the confinement field of a lagoon. Here, we improve the existing model in order to account for tide oscillations in any kind of geometry such as a non-rectangular lagoons with a non-flat bottom. The new model, that relies on PDEs rather than ODEs, is then implemented thanks to the finite element method. Numerical results confirm the feasibility of confinement studies thanks to the introduced model.
