Numerical Modeling of near Shore Coastal Processes

Numerical Modeling of near Shore Coastal Processes

NCSCM has facilities for coastal environment prediction using high-resolution numerical models to address complex estuary or coastal circulation problems. They accurately represent the dynamical processes of estuarine and coastal systems and assess the effect of each driving force. To achieve accurate predictions of wetlands, estuaries, and coastal environments based on their geophysical complexity, simulations of the morpho-hydrodynamic, chemical, and biological behaviour of coastal processes are performed using the finite element, the finite difference, the finite volume, and the Eulerian-Lagrangian methods. The numerical models available at NCSCM, such as one-dimensional (1D) models, two-dimensional (2D) depth-integrated models, and three-dimensional (3D) models, are listed below:
