Abstract:

Naval operations depend highly upon environmental conditions that can either adversely affect successful completion or hinder the safety of personnel. Each warfare community has defined environmental thresholds and operating limits that restrict the execution of any intended maneuver. As the warfare environment continues to shift from the open ocean to the littoral, prediction of the shallow water environment is an urgent need in order to support these operations. The value-aided of using a hydrodynamic model WQMAP for the mission planning of the naval operations in San Diego Bay is demonstrated in this study. A new model verification procedure i.e., compatibility verification is proposed for the tidal dominated littoral basin prediction.
