A baroclinic three dimensional numerical model applied to coastal Lagoons

An implicit barochnic unsteady three-dimensional model (HIDROTAM3) which consists of hydrodynamic, transport and turbulence model components, has been implemented to two real coastal water bodies namely, Oludeniz Lagoon located at the Mediterranean coast and Bodrum Bay located at the Aegean Sea coast of Turkey. M2 tide is the dominant tidal constituent for the coastal areas. The flow patterns in the coastal areas are mainly driven by the wind force. Model predictions are highly encouraging and provide favorable results.

Simulation of eddy-driven phytoplankton production in the Black Sea
Oguz, T; Salihoğlu, Barış (2000-07-15)
A three dimensional, three-layer biological model is used to assess impact of eddy-dominated horizontal circulation on the spatial and temporal variations of plankton biomass in the Black Sea. Simulations are shown to exhibit patchy distributions of phytoplankton biomass as inferred from satellite images, and their intensities agree reasonably well with observations. Overall performance of the three layer model points to its potential capability as a practical alternative tool to more complex and computatio...
Evolution of satellite derived mesoscale thermal patterns in the Black Sea
Sur, HI; Ilyin, YP (1997-01-01)
Infrared image sequences covering the Black Sea are examined to investigate the evolution of mesoscale structures on the sea surface during the warm seasons of 1991-1993. Wind induced surface mixing and convective mixing are responsible for producing many features. The influence of seasonal evolution of the cold intermediate water (CIW) on the vertical and surface structures of eddies, including cold anticyclonic ones in summer, is examined. The annual variations of the short and long wave structures accomp...
FILLING OF THE MARMARA SEA BY THE DARDANELLES LOWER LAYER INFLOW
BESIKTEPE, S; OZSOY, E; UNLUATA, U (1993-09-01)
The sub-halocline waters of the Marmara Sea are renewed with the incoming Dardanelles lower layer flow. As shown by observations, this inflow takes the form of a turbulent plume which first sinks down and then spreads out into the interior. A ''filling box'' model is developed to test the sensitivity of the Dardanelles-Marmara Sea system to the set of relevant environmental parameters. The seasonal variability of the Dardanelles inflow is shown to play a crucial role in the sub-halocline water mass characte...
Observations on the Rim Current structure, CIW formation and transport in the western Black Sea
Oguz, T; Besiktepe, S (1999-10-01)
CTD and ADCP measurements together with a sequence of satellite images indicate pronounced current meandering and eddy activity in the western Black Sea during April 1993. The Rim Current is identified as a well-defined meandering jet stream confined over the steepest topographic slope and associated cyclonic-anticyclonic eddy pairs located on both its sides. It has a form of highly energetic and unstable flow system, which, as it propagates cyclonically along the periphery of the basin, is modified in char...
THE MODELING OF THE FLOW OF WATER THROUGH THE BOSPORUS
JOHNS, B; OGUZ, T (1990-03-01)
A numerical model is developed for the exchange of water between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea through the Bosphorus. An essential part of the modelling procedure is the use of a turbulence energy equation in a scheme of turbulence parametrization. The simultaneous application of a transport equation for the salinity leads to a turbulence suppression term associated with the existence of a strongly stable vertical salinity stratification. Experiments are performed that show how a prescribed difference b...
