Abstract: Previous HitWaveNext Hit-Climate Studies in Baltimore Canyon Trough OCS--Environmental Implications

V. Goldsmith, R. A. Gammisch, P. S. Rosen

The VIMS-BLM Baltimore Canyon Trough Previous HitWaveNext Hit Climate Model (BCTWCM) encompassing 97,650 depths on a 0.5 n. mi. grid in the continental shelf area between Montauk Point, New York, and Cape Henlopen, Delaware, has been computed for 12 representative conditions. This model, encompassing the recently leased blocks, was produced rapidly (in six months) to assist in the benchmark OCS environmental studies by providing basic aerially distributed Previous HitwaveNext Hit information, and by integrating these data with other ongoing sedimentologic and biologic studies.

Data computed include Previous HitwaveNext Hit-ray diagrams, shelf-contour diagrams of Previous HitwaveNext Hit height and maximum horizontal bottom-Previous HitwaveNext Hit orbital velocity, and shoreline histograms of Previous HitwaveNext Hit-ray density, Previous HitwaveNext Hit height, and Previous HitwaveNext Hit energy. The data indicate several specific areas in the northwest and southwest parts of the lease block areas (which include some of the most expensive blocks) that contain areas of Previous HitwaveNext Hit-energy concentration for the 10- and 12-sec waves. The most significant geomorphic feature, with respect to Previous HitwaveNext Hit refraction, is the Hudson Shelf Valley, which is upwave from the lease block areas. Superimposed on the resulting Previous HitwaveNext Hit patterns in this lease block area are the locally highly variable Previous HitwaveTop effects induced by linear sand ridges. Concomitant temporal and spatial variability also is present in the sedimentologic and biologic characteristics.
