Nested numerical model system for the Chandeleur Islands

Graphic showing nested numerical model system used in generating wave and circulation boundary conditions for the Chandeleur Is

Detailed Description

Nested numerical model system used in generating wave and circulation boundary conditions for the Chandeleur Islands. Wavewatch III is run on the global and two regional model grids, providing full spectra wave boundary conditions to the two local COAWST grids. Both waves and circulation are simulated on these local grids, with circulation boundary conditions provided by archived operational models.
