Abstract:

The wind-driven circulation for thermally stratified lake conditions in a 16-mile by 16-mile nearshore region offshore Cleveland, Ohio, is studied for existing conditions and conditions as modified by a proposed jetport island. A steady-state 12 mph west wind, which produced maximum jetport effects in a previous WES study of the steady-state wind-driven circulation for well-mixed lake conditions in the nearshore region offshore Cleveland, Ohio, was chosen as the wind field for the model study.
