A two-dimensional model to investigate the pattern of current in estuary of Banyuasin has been developed. The properties of tide, wind, and current were measured to understand the dynamics of estuarine environment. Based on the information, the model of current simulation were performed. The simulation of model shows that offshore flow during flood tide and inland flow during ebb tide. Maximum current speed was recorded during mean-sea-level towards high tide of 0.8716 m s-1, while the minimum was 0.0661 m s-1 observed during ebb tide. The difference current speed between model and recorded is 0.04 m s-1. Keywords : Modeling, Current, Tidal, Banyuasin.
