Coupled global wind and tide driven coastal water levels and currents in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands

A high-resolution, unstructured finite element hydrodynamic model was implemented with a focus on the regional dynamics of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Spatial resolution of the unstructured mesh is at least 100 m along all the coastlines of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and reaches a resolution finer than 50 m in selected areas with… (More)
