Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to develop a coupled ocean-estuary simulation tool that will consist of the Regional Oceanic Modeling System ROMS and the nonhydrostatic, unstructured-grid SUNTANS model, in order to study the interaction of coastal regions with estuaries. The scientific goal will be to understand the dynamics of ocean-estuary exchange between San Francisco Bay and the coastal Pacific Ocean, with ROMS simulating the coastal Pacific Ocean, and SUNTANS simulating San Francisco Bay.
