Impact of constructing a low crested weir in Cape Canaveral on flushing in the Banana River
The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which constructing a low crested weir adjacent to Port Canaveral improves ushing in the Banana River. The Banana River is a 50 km long sub-basin of Indian River ...
Bias correction of 10m wind forecasts near a coastal estuary in East Central Florida
The lagoon is long (250 km), skinny (2 - 8 km wide), and shallow (1 - 3 m in depth). Fetch is limited in most wind directions, save from the NNW (340°) and the SSE (160°). Flow in the lagoon is primarily wind-driven, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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
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 ...
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 ...
