    • Bathymetric controls on sediment transport in the Hudson River estuary : lateral asymmetry and frontal trapping 

      Ralston, David K.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Warner, John C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-10-17)
      Analyses of field observations and numerical model results have identified that sediment transport in the Hudson River estuary is laterally segregated between channel and shoals, features frontal trapping at multiple ...
    • 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 ...
    • Sediment transport and deposition on a river-dominated tidal flat : an idealized model study 

      Chen, Shih-Nan; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Sherwood, Christopher R.; Ralston, David K. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-10-16)
      A 3-D hydrodynamic model is used to investigate how different size classes of river-derived sediment are transported, exported and trapped on an idealized, river-dominated tidal flat. The model is composed of a river channel ...
    • Sediment transport due to extreme events : the Hudson River estuary after tropical storms Irene and Lee 

      Ralston, David K.; Warner, John C.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Wall, Gary R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-10-18)
      Tropical Storms Irene and Lee in 2011 produced intense precipitation and flooding in the U.S. Northeast, including the Hudson River watershed. Sediment input to the Hudson River was approximately 2.7 megaton, about 5 times ...
