Description: Technical report
This report documents the development of a verified 2-D numerical model of the hydrodynamics and salinity of Biscayne Bay, FL. The computer code employed for this study was TABS-MDS (multidimensional sediment) (formerly called RMA10-WES). The model was calibrated and verified against an extensive set of hydrodynamic and salinity field data collected in a previous effort performed by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, in conjunction with the Biscayne National Park. This report discusses general characteristics of the Biscayne Bay system, model development, model boundary condition, and calibration and verification results.
