ADCIRC Hydrodynamic Modeling for Jacksonville Harbor Navigation Channel Design

PI: Scott C. Hagen
Co-PI: Peter Bacopoulos (UNF)

Project Summary:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District is conducting a General Re-evaluation Study for improving Jacksonville Harbor navigation and assessing impacts that channel modifications have on the general circulation in the St Johns River. The purpose of this work is to support the Re-evaluation Study by assessing channel modification impacts to circulation and water-level of the St Johns River, Salt Marshes and tributaries and marsh response and adaptation. UCF shall perform simulations that model the "existing base condition" and a project alternative including a sea level rise scenario for the future "with" and "without project" conditions.
