The HYDRO3D program has been documented to aid in the simulation of lakes, harbors, coastal areas, and estuaries. HYDRO3D is a dynamic modeling system that can be used to simulate currents in water bodies as they respond to tides, winds, density gradients, river flows, and basin geometry and bathymetry. The code is a three-dimensional, time-dependent, o-stretched coordinate, free surface model that can be run in fully three-dimensional (3-D) mode, tow-dimensional vertically-averaged (x-y), and two-dimensional laterally-averaged x-z mode. The applications provided demonstrated that the model is capable of realistic simulation of flow and salinity transport in complex and dynamic water bodies. These applications include simulations of tidal circulation and salinity transport in Suisun Bay, California and Charlotte Harbor, Florida and wind-forced circulation in Green Bay, Lake Michigan. Tidal circulation in Prince William Sound, Alaska was investigated to determine the feasibility of applying the model under emergency conditions. Finally, the calibration of the model for the Mississippi Sound is illustrated.
