Abstract: Abstract: The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL), has developed the multimodule Adaptive Hydraulics (ADH) hydrodynamic, sediment, water quality, and transport model. As a natural progression of this development process, verification of ADH was performed to known solutions for the basic physics contained in the numerical model. This report documents a validation of the model performed by applying the three-dimensional shallow water module (ADH-SW3) to Galveston Bay and comparing results to field observations. The validation exercise shows good agreement with the field for water surface elevations, velocities, and salinity.
