Abstract Applying the two-dimensional model system Telemac2D, the transport of arsenic and oil during extreme flood events was modeled for the region Bitterfeld (Germany). Telemac2D includes sub-routines that describe hydrodynamics, transport and first-order partitioning of soluble and particle-bound pollutants. Oil spills were numerically treated as particulate pollutants with zero settling velocity. Simulations of the inundation of a small region after a dam-break revealed distinct small-scale contamination patterns and partly exhibited severe contamination. Comparison with measurements from the Mulde flood in August 2002 gives reasonable agreement. The model will be calibrated and validated by several measurements with sediment traps during flood events.
