    • Complex mean circulation over the inner shelf south of Martha's Vineyard revealed by observations and a high-resolution model 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Lentz, Steven J.; Kirincich, Anthony R.; Farrar, J. Thomas (American Geophysical Union, 2011-10-29)
      Inner-shelf circulation is governed by the interaction between tides, baroclinic forcing, winds, waves, and frictional losses; the mean circulation ultimately governs exchange between the coast and ocean. In some cases, ...
    • Decadal-timescale estuarine geomorphic change under future scenarios of climate and sediment supply 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Schoellhamer, David H. (Springer, 2009-12-19)
      Future estuarine geomorphic change, in response to climate change, sea-level rise, and watershed sediment supply, may govern ecological function, navigation, and water quality. We estimated geomorphic changes in Suisun ...
    • Development of a coupled wave-flow-vegetation interaction model 

      Beudin, Alexis; Kalra, Tarandeep S.; Ganju, Neil K.; Warner, John C. (Elsevier, 2016-12-15)
      Emergent and submerged vegetation can significantly affect coastal hydrodynamics. However, most deterministic numerical models do not take into account their influence on currents, waves, and turbulence. In this paper, we ...
    • Dynamic reusable workflows for ocean science 

      Signell, Richard P.; Fernandes, Filipe; Wilcox, Kyle (MDPI AG, 2016-10-25)
      Digital catalogs of ocean data have been available for decades, but advances in standardized services and software for catalog searches and data access now make it possible to create catalog-driven workflows that ...
    • Evolution of Mid-Atlantic coastal and back-barrier estuary environments in response to a hurricane : implications for barrier-estuary connectivity 

      Miselis, Jennifer L.; Andrews, Brian D.; Nicholson, Robert S.; Defne, Zafer; Ganju, Neil K.; Navoy, Anthony (Springer, 2015-12-29)
      Assessments of coupled barrier island-estuary storm response are rare. Hurricane Sandy made landfall during an investigation in Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor estuary that included water quality monitoring, geomorphologic ...
    • Hindcasting of decadal-timescale estuarine bathymetric change with a tidal-timescale model 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Schoellhamer, David H.; Jaffe, Bruce E. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-02)
      Hindcasting decadal-timescale bathymetric change in estuaries is prone to error due to limited data for initial conditions, boundary forcing, and calibration; computational limitations further hinder efforts. We developed ...
    • Inner-shelf ocean dynamics and seafloor morphologic changes during Hurricane Sandy 

      Warner, John C.; Schwab, William C.; List, Jeffrey H.; Safak, Ilgar; Liste, Maria; Baldwin, Wayne E. (Elsevier, 2017-02-17)
      Hurricane Sandy was one of the most destructive hurricanes in US history, making landfall on the New Jersey coast on October 30, 2012. Storm impacts included several barrier island breaches, massive coastal erosion, and ...
    • Progress and challenges in coupled hydrodynamic-ecological estuarine modeling 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Brush, Mark J.; Rashleigh, Brenda; Aretxabaleta, Alfredo L.; del Barrio, Pilar; Grear, Jason S.; Harris, Lora A.; Lake, Samuel J.; McCardell, Grant; O’Donnell, James; Ralston, David K.; Signell, Richard P.; Testa, Jeremy M.; Vaudrey, Jamie M. P. (Springer, 2015-07-07)
      Numerical modeling has emerged over the last several decades as a widely accepted tool for investigations in environmental sciences. In estuarine research, hydrodynamic and ecological models have moved along parallel tracks ...
    • Quantification of storm-induced bathymetric change in a back-barrier estuary 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Suttles, Steven E.; Beudin, Alexis; Nowacki, Daniel J.; Miselis, Jennifer L.; Andrews, Brian D. (Springer, 2016-07-26)
      Geomorphology is a fundamental control on ecological and economic function of estuaries. However, relative to open coasts, there has been little quantification of storm-induced bathymetric change in back-barrier estuaries. ...
    • Sorted bed forms as self-organized patterns : 2. Complex forcing scenarios 

      Coco, Giovanni; Murray, A. Brad; Green, Malcolm O.; Thieler, E. Robert; Hume, T. M. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-08-14)
      We employ a numerical model to study the development of sorted bed forms under a variety of hydrodynamic and sedimentary conditions. Results indicate that increased variability in wave height decreases the growth rate of ...
