In this paper we consider an explicit, characteristic-based method for the numerical simulation of the dispersion of contaminants in a fluid medium. A quasi-3D formulation is employed for the spatial approximation. Two real-life applications of the model developed are presented: the dispersion of the plume of the Ebro river and the thermal outflow of power plants in the Huelva estuary.
