Summary

We used the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST; Warner and others, 2010) model to simulate ocean circulation, waves, and sediment transport in Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, during Hurricane Sandy. The simulation period was from October 27 to November 4, 2012. Initial conditions for the salinity and temperature fields in the domain were acquired from a 7-month simulation of the same domain (Defne and Ganju, 2018). We used a 2012 digital terrain model (Andrews and others, 2015) to prescribe the prestorm bathymetry. Wetting and drying was enabled, wave-current interaction was modeled with a boundary-layer formulation accounting for the apparent roughness of waves, and the vortex force formulation was used for wave-energy [...]

Purpose

This is a collection of hydrodynamic circulation and sediment transport simulations in Barnegat Bay during Hurricane Sandy 2012. These simulations were designed to provide hydrodynamic modeling results on a native grid and time step to support the scientific research on hydrodynamic circulation, wave conditions and sediment transport in Barnegat Bay during Hurricane Sandy. These model results may also be reused to support any prospective research work where appropriate.
