Abstract:

The objectives of this study is 1 to produce a state of the art numerical model of a large reach of the Missouri River, capable of simulating high resolution spatiallytemporally distributed results of water depth and velocity, 2 to investigate model behavior through a sensitivity analysis, 3 to compare model predictions to multiple types of measured data, internal to the model domain, in order to assess model performance and the utility of the validation data, and 4 to investigate the impact of varying levels of bathymetric data and mesh resolutions on the model predictions.
