These files provide more details on model inputs and results in supplementing those presented in Ye et al. (2018; associated publication). A compressed DEM file (DEM.zip) is provided, which can be opened with common zip/unzip software on unix/windows/mac (such as unzip, gzip, winzip, etc.). Once extracted, there is a README along with the actual data. The DEM used here is primarily based on the topo-bathymetric information from USGS ( https://topotools.cr.usgs.gov/coned/chesapeake_bay.php; last accessed in Feb. 2017), supplemented by the latest navigation charts (especially around Baltimore harbor area), and coastal relief model (https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/coastal/crm.html, last accessed in Jan 2017) for the coastal and shelf region. Also included in the supplemental materials is another zip file (vertical_profile.zip) containing the salinity model-data comparisons on the vertical profiles at all available CTD casts. Lastly, the spatial/temporal coverage of NDBC buoys (for constructing the hybrid wind product) is illustrated in “Spatial_temporal_NDBC.pdf”.
The bathymetry file can be downloaded by the “download” button on the top-right of this webpage, while additional files are located at the bottom of the page.
