Abstract : The objective of this investigation is to produce a 3-D hydrodynamic and salinity model validation sufficient to demonstrate the model capability to estimate project-induced change. Since the primary interest of the overall study is the impact of the project upon oyster production, the measure of validation sufficiency is based upon the needs of the oyster model. (MM)
