Abstract

A three-dimensional, primitive equation ocean circulation model (Wang and Ikeda[7]), was applied to Prince William Sound, Alaska (3D-PWS model) under forcing of freshwater runoff of a line source, heat flux, Gulf of Alaska (GO A) water inflow/outflow (throughflow), and daily (synoptic), spatially varying winds. The 3-D structures and seasonal cycles of the circulation pa
