Abstract

The effect of channel dredging and island construction on tidal flow and circulation in Hillsborough Bay, Fla., due to the Tampa Harbor Deepening Project is being investigated using a two-dimensional, finite-difference numerical model. Preliminary model results are presented as a series of maps showing tidal flood, tidal ebb, and circulation patterns in the bay for predredging and postdredging conditions. Complex circulation patterns occur near the bay mouth in an area where there is (1) a change in thalweg alinement of the bay, (2) an intersection of three major ship channels, and (3) submergent and emergent dredged material located adjacent to each of the channels.
