Summary
Abstract: Static and animated output displaying bottom topography contours,
water level, and depth averaged current speed and direction.
A suite of computer models calculates the depth-averaged currents and
surface elevations in the regions shown. The models solve the
equations of motion in a form appropriate for the ocean. The models
are forced by winds from a weather prediction model and the
astronomical tides.
