Abstract
The tidal hydrodynamics of the northern coast of Brittany is determine d by numerical modelling. Long term transportation and mixing are cons idered for the whole zone. To define areas sensitive to eutrophication (from the hydrodynamic point of view) physical criteria are discussed . An application is carried out for the bay of Lannion and the bay of Saint-Brieuc.
