Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Estuarine and Coastal Modeling, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, November 3-5, 1999.

This collection contains 83 peer-reviewed papers presenting the state of the art and practice in marine environmental modeling. The primary focus is on application of models to bays, sounds, lagoons, estuaries, embayments, bights, and coastal seas.

Models under consideration include those that can:

  • be applied to problems in hydrodynamics, water quality, and sediment transport;
  • solve engineering and environmental impact assessment problems,
  • attempt to better understand circulation and pollutant transport in nearshore waters; and
  • address regulatory requirements for facility sighting and operations;

Topics include:

  • finite volume and adjoint methods;
  • predicting impacts at sensitive sites;
  • simulating thermal processes;
  • hydrodynamic model formulation;
  • sediment transport processes;
  • models for environmental assessment;
  • three-dimensional water quality simulations;
  • waves and wave-induced currents;
  • simulating shelf-scale processes;
  • plume simulations;
  • hydrodynamics and GIS;
  • transport of organisms;
  • modeling enclosed bays;
  • development and operation of coastal forecast systems;
  • innovative computational techniques;
  • data assimilation and model skill; and
  • morphodynamic modeling.
