Abstract:

The present project is part of a comprehensive effort by the PI, his students, and collaborators at the Naval Research Laboratory to increase the robustness and viability of the Delft3D model suite as an operational forecasting tool, and aid its continued transition to Navy forecasting centers. Prior projects have focused on determining the models response to characteristics and sample sizes of bathymetric information. The present project focuses on determining the effect of boundary errors on model response, and the development of methods to ameliorate these issues. The objectives are 1 Investigate the effect of boundary forcing errors on the model response. 2 Implement a 1D wave driver on the lateral boundaries. 3 Develop methods for correcting the boundary errors to optimize model accuracy.
