Abstract:

Numerical modeling studies over the past several decades have demonstrated progress both in model architecture and in the use of rapidly advancing computational resources. Perhaps the most notable aspect of this progression has been the evolution from simulations on coarse-resolution horizontal and vertical grids that outline basins of simplified geometry and bathymetry and that are forced by idealized surface fluxes, to fine-resolution simulations that incorporate realistic coastline definition and bottom data on relatively short time scales.
