Although it is difficult to model the movement of sediment in the river, it is more difficult to model its behavior in the marine environment after reaching the sea. The fate of the cohesive sediments entering the sea from the Fol River located within the borders of Vakfıkebir district of Trabzon province was modeled using the POMSED package program. The areas, where the cohesive sediments entering the sea from the river, are accumulated and deposited in the marine environment were modeled under different parameters such as the north-west wind effect, the current from the west to the east, the amount of cohesive sediment entering the stream, and the sediment drift velocity. It has been determined that the sediment drift velocity, that is, the high-flow seasons is the parameter that has the most impact on the accumulation and deposition areas of cohesive sediments in the marine environment.
