Dye Dispersion in the Tidal Front: Model-Observation Comparison
Houghton, R.1, C. Chen2 and Q. Xu2
In general, there is qualitative agreement between observational and model results. It is clear that model grid spacing less than 1 km is required. There has been difficulty in getting a realistic cross-bank scale of the model tidal front. The cross-front velocities are about twice the observed but the tim e dependence of the dye patch variance is comparable.
