Short summary
In this paper, we applied FVCOM to perform the numerical simulation of salinity in Liao River estuary waters, with consideration of the effects of river discharge cutoff and shoreline variation. Decrease in runoff was demonstrated to significantly increase the mean salinity values of the estuary. The shoreline change caused by the port construction was observed to have an obvious influence on salinity distribution patterns, with the mean salinity value increased in wetland waters near the port.
