Abstract: Using the observed data collected from 1995-98 in Prince William Sound and the forcing of tide, coastal current inflow/outflow, freshwater discharge, and wind stress, a 3-D Prince William Sound model developed under the Sound Ecosystem Assessment (SEA, Project /320) will be used to produce a continuous four year, 3-D fields of velocity, temperature, salinity and mixing coefficients for resource managers, fishing industry and biological applications (in SEA, only 1996 physical forcing has been provided). In addition, the interannual variability of Prince William Sound ocean circulation, temperature, and salinity due to interannually variable atmospheric forcing will be studied. This will allow identification of the key environmental parameters to be included in a long-term monitoring program to assist resource managers. In addition, FY 01 funding will rescue the Sound Ecosystem Assessment (SEA, Project/320) database and install it on a new server at the Institute of Marine Science, International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The new server will serve future modeling studies for the Gulf Ecosystem Monitoring (GEM) program.
