Implications of Deep Ocean Modelling on Coastal Sedimentation Prediction

by Richard A. Schmalz, Jr., Harvard Univ, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling

Abstract: The Harvard University Ocean Predictive Descriptive System is reviewed and recent results of mesoscale ocean prediction are presented for the Northeast Pacific and Gulf Stream Ring Stream Interaction Region. Extensions are developed for application to coastal shelf and estuarine circulation with implications on sediment prediction. A connected set of research projects is advanced to move toward coastal sedimentation prediction.
