English translation:far field
Explanation:
Eurodicautom gives "far field" for "campo lejano".
This term is confirmed by the following text:

7. A LAGRANGIAN 3D NUMERICAL MODEL OF POLLUTANT DISPERSION IN COASTAL WATERS
Environmental Coastal Regions, Comput. Mech. Pub., WIT Press, 331-340 (1998)
Two-dimensional numerical models have been extensively used in the far field to solve hydrodynamics and the asociated pollutant transport. However the results obtained from these models may not be suitable when used in the near field or in areas where the hydrodynamics has three-dimensional features, such as wind-induced currents in the nearshore region or wave-induced currents in the surf zone. A 3D Lagrangian numerical model has been developed in order to simulate pollutant transport in non-uniform and stratified hydrodynamic flows. In this paper the model characteristics and its calibration process are described and posteriorly it is applied to the case of the Besòs marine outfall, near Barcelona (Spanish Mediterranean coast) and to simulate tracer clouds dispersion in the surf-zone.

8. LAD_3D: MODELO 3D DE SIMULACIÓN DE LA DISPERSIÓN EN CAMPO CERCANO Y LEJANO DE CONTAMINANTES EN AGUAS COSTERAS
Revista Internacional de Métodos Numéricos para Cálculo y Diseño en Ingeniería, vol. 14, 2, 225-246 (1998)
Los modelos bidimensionales que resuelven la hidrodinámica y el transporte de contaminantes asociado han sido ampliamente utilizados en el campo lejano, pero pueden dar lugar a resultados poco realistas en el campo cercano o en situaciones en las cuales la hidrodinámica es esencialmente tridimensional; este es el caso, por ejemplo, de las corrientes inducidas por viento cerca de la costa, o inducidas por oleaje en la zona de rompientes. Con el objetivo de resolver la ecuación de convección difusión en tres dimensiones, y simular el transporte de contaminantes en flujos no uiformes y estratificados, se ha desarrollado un modelo numérico basado en una formulación lagrangiana del problema tridimensional. El modelo es descrito en detalle, y se aplica al caso del emisario submarino de Barcelona, en el Mediterráneo español.
