| Welcome to
the Glacier Bay Tidal Modeling Page. These pages summarize recent
efforts to model the oceanographic circulations within Glacier Bay
National Park, Alaska. The work described herein has been
conducted by researchers in the Department
of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. The
Principal Investigator for this project is Dr. David Hill.
This project began as an informal collaboration between Dr. Hill and
Dr. Lisa Etherington, then a biologist with the United States
Geological Survey Glacier Bay
Field Station. Since that time, the project has been carried
out with funding provided by the National
These pages are organized as follows:
Thank you for visiting. All questions,
comments, and suggestions should be directed to Dr. David Hill at dfh4
at psu dot edu. A CD of these pages is available upon request.
- Reports - here
the viewer will find brief
and extended technical reports describing the modeling efforts and
results. Additionally, related student theses carried out
underneath the umbrella of this project are presented.
- Media -
illustrative and informative
figures and animations are presented here.
- Data - foundational
coastline, climate, etc.) are presented in this section, along with
data files from various computational simulations.
- Software - the
vast majority of this
project was carried out using open source software and utilities.
When possible, the software is provided directly; otherwise external
links to the sources are given.
- Links - Finally,
this page provides a
useful, but by no means complete, list of links related to Glacier Bay.
