Tributary Loading with a Terrain Following Coordinate System
The modeling of physical processes that occur in a tributary between the farthest downstream gage and the lake interface can help to improve the predictive capabilities of Great Lakes...

An Energy Based Model for Coastal Bays and Lakes
The North American Great Lakes have numerous tributary bays and small lakes along their coastline that open directly to the Great Lakes through natural or engineered channels. As a consequence...

Conservation Properties of the Mild Slope and Boussinesq Equations
Common water wave evolution equations, such as the mild slope equation, parabolic approximations and Boussinesq equations, are approximate statements of conservation laws. A feasible measure...

Nonlinear Decomposition of a 2-D Wave Field
