Initialization and setup of the Coastal Model Test Bed : integrated bathymetry
Young, David L.; Bak, A. Spicer.; Forte, Michael F.
This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) introduces the implementation of the integrated bathymetry product in the Coastal Model Test Bed (CMTB). Nearshore numerical models such as CSHORE (Johnson et al. 2012), CMS – Coastal Modeling System (Lin et al. 2008), STWAVE (Smith et al. 2001), etc., are frequently employed by engineers and scientists to model complex physical processes. These models rely on accurate and appropriately smooth bathymetries to operate properly. This CHETN addresses the process by which new bathymetric surveys are gridded, smoothed, splined, and incorporated into a background grid with the regional Digital Elevation Model (DEM) used to fill the remaining portion of the modeling domain. The script used to generate these bathymetries is available in the MakeBathyInterp repository on Bitbucket (Bak 2018).
