Open access, publicly available, integrated modeling platforms

The San Francisco Bay-Delta system is complex in its physical and environmental dynamics. Modeling tools integrating hydrodynamics and water quality dynamics are essential to unravel the governing processes on spatial and temporal scales and assess potential developments due to climate change and adapting management strategies.

 

These platforms facilitate and enhance interdisciplinary and interagency scientific communication, collaboration, and understanding.

This website provides a platform for the availability and continuous development of a process-based, hydrodynamic surface water flow model applying the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite describing the San Francisco Bay-Delta system. The domain covers an area from Point Reyes up to the tidal limits near Sacramento and Vernalis.

 

A high-resolution mesh allows detailed computations

 

Hydrodynamics

Still water levels,

salinity and temperature

Sediment Transport

Sand and mud transport, suspended sediment concentration, turbidity, morphodynamics

Water Quality

Turbidity, phytoplankton, nutrients, and contaminants

Eco-Systems

Habitat indicators
