Lake Washington Sigma-Zed Model
Model Name: DM-15_Lake_Washington_Model
Objective: Use EFDC_Explorer (EE) and EFDC+ to simulate hydrodynamics in Lake Washington. The model uses temperature modules with the Sigma-Zed vertical layering option to simulate thermal stratification in Lake Washington, Seattle, USA. The Sigma Zed model is unique to EFDC+ and is designed to reduce pressure gradient errors with an approach that is computationally efficient. Step-by-step guidance in how to build this model is provided in the EE Knowledge Base.
Model Grid: 1,183 horizontal grid cells and 55 vertical layers.
