A three dimensional ecological model(EMT-3D) was applied to Ulsan Bay for the simulation of Dioxins. The simulated results of dissolved Dioxins were in agreement with the observed values, with a correlation coefficient(R) of 0.7951 and a coefficient of determination($R^2$) of 0.6265. The results of sensitivity analysis showed that partition rate, adsorption rate and bioconcentration factor were important factors. Therefore, the parameters must be carefully considered in the modeling. In the case of 50% and 80% total loads reduction, concentration of dissolved Dioxins was shown to be lower than 0.150 and 0.250 pg WHD-TEQ/L, respectively.
