Abstract

The purpose of this document is to present in a compact form the capabilities of the UCLA version of the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS), incorporating sediment transport algorithms developed in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey, to address water and sediment quality issues in the coastal ocean with particular reference to the Southern California Bight and the coastal region near Los Angeles and Orange County. In the following sections the components of the ROMS model are discussed, including examples of applications. The document concludes with a summary of needs for future model development and potential new applications.
