Title: Effect of Wind on Surface-Water Flows
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: text files
Online_Linkage: <https://sofia.usgs.gov/projects/wind_swf>
Description:
Abstract:
Flows in and through the Everglades wetlands and bordering subtidal embayments are often characterized by very low velocities that are driven or controlled at various scales by wind, gravity, pressure, and vegetative resistance. Little is known about the effect of wind on water movement in these environments, and no focused efforts are currently underway to assess its importance. This project will examine the effect of wind on surface-water flows.
Purpose:
With insight into the functional relationships and into the scales at which wind forcing data must be collected for model input gained from the field efforts, the treatment of wind forcing in models can be improved. This, in turn, can lead to enhanced understanding of the significance of wind effects on flow, transport, and horizontal mixing in the SICS (Southern inland coastal systems of Dade County) study area.

Process_Description:
This study involved three components:

(1) a series of experiments using an enclosed wind cowling constructed on top of the indoor flume at Stennis Space Center to study vegetative effects

(2) collection of a number of contemporaneous time-series measurements of wind speed and direction from instruments already deployed at various locations within the Everglades and bordering subembayments to investigate long-term setup effects

(3) combination of results from these two efforts to provide improved formulations of the wind forcing term for numerical flow models. The response of water velocity to wind will be studied as a function of wind speed, water depth, and concurrent slope of the water surface in the flume experiments.
