  • Description:
    "This numerical model is based upon an implicit finite difference formulation of the governing equations. The model has been calibrated and verified against field data. Results indicate that the hydrodynamics of the bay, velocities and surface elevations, are dominated by astronomical tides, although the wind can significantly affect water surface elevations. Salinity values and contours are very dependent upon the level of fresh water inflow. The model can be used as a predictive tool for most conditions in the bay despite the fact that areas near passes and fresh water inflow may be stratified at certain times in the tidal cycle"--NSGL Publication website.
