Description: Technical report
Abstract: The ADaptive Hydraulics model, ADH, was used to investigate the circulation tendencies in and around Bush Canal by utilizing its two-dimensional shallow-water module. This study characterizes existing water levels and currents in the vicinity of Bush Canal and predicts any potential impacts that may result from the construction of a structure in Bush Canal near its junction with Bayou Terrebonne. Comparing model-generated currents and water-surface elevations between pre- and post-construction conditions provides insight into whether a particular alternative will adversely impact velocity conditions. ADH was used to develop time series of current fields for the base and plan conditions.
