Wind and tide current prediction using a 3D finite difference model in the Ría de Vigo (NW Spain)
Carlos Souto, L. Fariña-Busto, E. Alvarez, I. Rodríguez

A 3D barotropic finite difference model was adapted to reproduce the dynamics of the Ría de Vigo estuary, in the north-west corner of Spain. The model has been applied with astronomical tide and observed wind forcing data. The results are compared to data obtained by an AANDERAA DCM 12 acoustic Doppler current meter at one point of the Ría.
