Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution has a variable grid size ranging from 430 m to 10km depending on the location. Vertical sigma coordinate terrain following is used for the vertical dimension and divided into 20 segments.
Temporal Resolution
The model simulation duration ranges from days to years.
Outputs
Model outputs include nitrogen and sediment fluxes, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll concentrations at points across the Chesapeake Bay.
