Description

This dataset comprises the primary inputs and outputs from the ANUGA hydrodynamic model for spring 2021 (2021-03-20 to 2021-04-04). These dates align with the 2021 Delta-X Spring Campaign. Data cover the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne basins of the Mississippi River Delta in southern Louisiana, USA. ANUGA is a 2D depth-integrated hydrodynamic model which uses the Finite Volume Method (FVM) to numerically solve the shallow water momentum and continuity equations for fluid flow in broad-scale geophysical systems. The inputs consist of a modified digital elevation (DEM) model, a spatial classification of the friction coefficient modified, and the model's unstructured grid with boundary condition locations. The model's outputs include two weeks of predictions of water levels and mean horizontal velocities at each mesh node at a 30-minute time step. Outputs are provided in NetCDF format, and inputs are provided in GeoTIFF and comma separated values (CSV) format. Also included are MP4 videos (*.mp4) that provide visual summaries of the outputs.
