COASTAL AND ESTUARINE HYDRODYNAMIC MODELING IN CURVILINEAR GRIDS

Y. Peter Sheng, T.S. Wu, P.F. Wang

Abstract


A time-dependent three-dimensional numerical model of coastal and estuarine circulation, which allows the use of generalized curvilinear grids to resolve the complex shoreline geometry and bathymetry, has been developed. Model formulation is briefly presented, followed by example model applications to such water bodies as Lake Okeechobee, James River and Chesapeake Bay.

Keywords
