    • Effect of wind reduction factors on forecasting circulation in an estuary 

      Saberi, Atousa; Weaver, Robert J.; Taeb, Peyman; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael E.; Holman, Bryan P.; Colvin, Jeff (2016-01-14)
      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 ...
    • Forecasting significant wave height in a coastal estuary 

      Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael; Colvin, Jeff; Holman, Bryan; Weaver, Robert; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2016-01-13)
      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
    • Forecasting wind setup in a coastal estuary 

      Colvin, Jeff; Lazarus, Steven; Splitt, Michael; Holman, Bryan P.; Weaver, Robert; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2016-01-11)
      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 

      Weaver, Robert J.; Taeb, Peyman; Holman, Bryan P.; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael E.; Saberi, Atousa; Colvin, Jeff (2016-01-13)
      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 

      Colvin, Jeff; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael; Holman, Bryan (2016-01-11)
      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 ...
    • Sensitivity of modeled wave field to temporal and spatial resolution of meteorological forcing 

      Taeb, Peyman; Weaver, Robert J.; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael E.; Holman, Bryan P.; Colvin, Jeff; Saberi, Atousa (2016-01-14)
      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 ...
    • Super-oceanic winds over a narrow coastal estuary in onshore flow events 

      Splitt, Michael; Lazarus, Steven M.; Colvin, Jeff; Holman, Bryan P. (2016-01-13)
      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 ...
