The numerical modeling technology developed for Chesapeake Bay was applied to the Middle Atlantic Bight extending 550 km form Cape May, NJ, northeasterly to Nantucket Island, MA, and extending approximately 160 km offshore to the continental shelf. The study included New York Bight, tidally-influenced estuaries, harbors, bays, and Long Island Sound. The objective of the study was to investigate whether a numerical model of this extensive, coupled system could be successively applied to simulate hydrodynamics and water quality. The paper provides a description of graphical procedures used for model-prototype comparison.
