Abstract: Recently, a three-dimensional numerical hydrodynamic model of the New York Bight developed by the Waterways Experiment Station was applied to the Long Island Sound subregion, using NOAA's 1990 field data. Comparisons of model results with observed tides, velocities, temperature, salinity, and net flow in East River show the model reproduces the overall behavior of the Sound and East River reasonably well. The comparison may be improved by specifying finer grid resolution and better initial and boundary conditions.
