Flow and density structures in Ise Bay are strongly affected by meteorological disturbances because Ise Bay is a typical shallow and semi-enclosed bay. Therefore, it is necessary to take into account the influence of the meteorological disturbances appropriately in a numerical simulation.
In this study, an Atmosphere-Ocean-Wave coupled model that can estimate coastal currents under the influence of meteorological disturbances is used to simulate flow and density structures in Ise Bay under various meteorological conditions. The comparison between the numerical and in-situ observation results was performed to verify the coupled model. As a result, it was demonstrated that the coupled model can appropriately simulate the oceanographic and meteorologic phenomena in Ise Bay, such as wind speed, tide level, water temperature, and so on.
