The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ran a series of model scnearios using a predictive, mechanistic, three-dimensional hydrodynamic model for the St. Louis River Estuary (SLRE), Minnesota-Wisconsin. The original SLRE model was developed and published in the U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2020-5028. The model scenarios for this model archive were run to to produce velocity profiles for the Munger Landing area (City of Duluth, Minnesota) within the St. Louis River Estuary. Although velocity profiles can be output for any cell within the model framework, the velocity profile time series around Munger Landing in the original model release (P990OUS6) were not included. Therefore, the velocity profile time series are included in this model release for the following years: 2012, 2016, 2017, and 2019. Additionally, nested model scenarios are included for the Munger Landing area, including selected velocity profiles within the Munger Landing reach. Model grid changes to the calibrated model did not affect the overall original model calibration, with calibration statistics included with the 2016 and 2017 coarse model runs (SLRE_2016_newgrid; SLRE_2017_newgrid).
