Abstract: Applying the advanced-computer technology available at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), researchers from SDSC and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) simulated and visualized numerical results of circulation and transport processes in San Francisco Bay. This paper discusses how these simulations were made using modeling-system software developed at the U.S. Geological Survey and enhanced by SDSC staff. Computations were done on a CRAY Y-MP8/864 supercomputer and the visualizations on a Silicon Graphics IRIS-4D series workstation.
