Abstract:

A previously developed three-dimensional, variable-density hydrodynamic model was applied to the Lake Erie area about Cleveland. This application was to investigate the effect of a proposed jetport island on the summer stratification pattern in the nearshore lake area and on the flushing characteristics of the Cuyahoga River outflow into the lake. Initial results obtained from the application of the model are presented. Author
