Summary

This data set contains water depths and velocities measured with an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) used to develop a three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model. The CFD model was used to inform fish spawning habitat remediation projects in the Detroit River near Belle Isle. Prior to construction of three fish spawning reefs in 2016, ADCP measurements were made throughout the study area in 2014 and 2016. ADCP surveys were repeated in 2017 following the construction of the reefs. Water velocity measurements made prior to reef construction were used to calibrate the CFD model predicting the flow field over the remediation sites during pre-construction conditions. Following calibration, the three reefs were virtually [...]

Purpose

The CFD model was used to inform fish spawning habitat remediation projects in the Detroit River near Belle Isle by simulating reef construction and quantifying shear stress and habitat availability over the reef sites.
