Abstract:

This report discusses details of the numerical algorithms used to simulate wave, tide, and wind-driven hydrodynamics in estuaries and coastal bays. The impacts of the predicted flow on mass transport in estuaries are examined. The results of several sample problems are presented and compared to observations where possible. The results are intended to be used as guidance in formulating modeling strategies for different coastal environments and specific applications.
