Abstract:

A combination of physical and numerical models was used to simulate the hydrodynamic, circulation, and sediment transport characteristics of San Francisco and San Pablo bays. This simulation was done in response to a request by the US Army Engineer District, San Francisco, to develop a modeling tool that can define the fate of dredged material disposed at the Alcatraz disposal site.
