Influence of wind and river discharge on the hypoxia in a shallow bay
Description: Perdido Bay is a shallow bay with narrow inlets connecting with Gulf of Mexico. It is affected by severe hypoxia problem due to its narrow tidal range of around 0.4 m. In this research an existing calibrated eutrophication model, as described in Xia et al. (J Coastal Res 719: 73-86, 2011a), was used to simulate the bottom hypoxia of Perdido Bay in response to the changing local wind and river discharge. [Source: Ocean Dynamics]
