REALM for Shallow Water Equations in complex geometries
ANAG and the California Department of Water Resources are collaborating on an open-source hydrodynamic, transport, and particle tracking model (REALM). Estuary systems of bays and channels comprise our problem domains, over which we discretize the shallow water equations. These equations represent the conservation of mass and momentum in one and two dimensions, including the effects of varying bathymetry and source terms. When completed, REALM will contribute to controversial water-policy debates in California through estimates of salinity, transport of pollutants, and the survival of young fish.
