Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report documents the development of a hydrodynamic and salinity transport model for the Morganza to the Gulf of Mexico study area. The model domain encompasses a significant portion of the Louisiana coastline, extending from Bayou Lafourche (eastern boundary) to the Vermilion Bay (western boundary). This report details the creation of the mesh and all boundary conditions. Also included are model-versus-field comparisons, exhibiting the model's ability to accurately represent the behavior of the system. The validated model (for hydrodynamics and salinity) detailed in this report was utilized to determine approximate base-versus-plan differences for the proposed Morganza to the Gulf of Mexico levee system, including the impacts associated with sea-level rise.
