Forecasting significant wave height in a coastal estuary
Would like to ‘extend’ the Nearshore Wave Prediction System (NWPS, Van Der Westhuysen et al. 2013) into a large narrow estuary (Indian River Lagoon, IRL). Full-blown hydrodynamic simulations
Sensitivity of modeled wave field to temporal and spatial resolution of meteorological forcing
First I talk about our domain of interest that is Indian River lagoon. Then the meteorological event that we did the simulations for. After this, I have a short talk about model set up, then results, and in the end; most ...
Impacts of bias correction of wind forecasts on hydrodynamic and wave model predictions
High-resolution hydrodynamic models are forced by surface wind output from operational met. models. Current suite of operational met. models do not have the spatial resolution needed to resolve the fine scale processes ...
Measuring wind-driven wave properties in a coastal estuary
The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a long, narrow coastal estuary on Florida’s east coast (250 km long, less than 2 km in width in places) Wind and Wave Measurements along the IRL: Sparse to non-existant! Difficult to ...
Forecasting wind setup in a coastal estuary
The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a long, narrow coastal estuary on Florida’s east coast (250 km long, less than 2 km in width in places) Wind Setup: Contributes to local flooding Increases the base water level to which ...
Effect of wind reduction factors on forecasting circulation in an estuary
Using high resolution WRF model for forecasting wind is computationally expensive Could we develop a new method that deals with wind over land that is not as expensive as WRF? ADCIRC hydrodynamics model is able to ...
Super-oceanic winds over a narrow coastal estuary in onshore flow events
Indian River Lagoon Winds -- Shallow water estuary -- Average depth ~ 1 m -- Fetch limited except NNW/SSE -- Stretches 150 miles north/south -- Limited exchange with ocean via inlets -- Improvement of wind forcing ...
