Summary

Hypoxia within lower Green Bay has been a problem for decades, and the problem may be worsening. Numerical modeling and field studies are underway to improve our understanding of circulation, thermal regime and anoxia in Green Bay. Model validation was successful because modeled currents are reasonably close to data collected at three monitoring stations. Model results showed that wind shear and circulation are stronger in winter than in summer. Water exchange between Lake Michigan and Green Bay is stronger during the summer, when wind shear is mostly axial. Mass exchange affects stratification, and possibly the development of anoxia. Results showed stable anticyclonic gyres both south and north of Chambers Island, and cyclonic gyres [...]
