ALVAREZ-SILVA, OSCAR; OSORIO, ANDRÉS F.  e  GOMEZ-GIRALDO, ANDRÉS. DETERMINATION OF THE WAVE MEAN REGIME IN THE MOUTH OF LEON RIVER. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2012, vol.79, n.173, pp.95-102. ISSN 0012-7353.

The León River mouth is a major waterway in Urabá region. To optimize the activities around the mouth it is essential to understand the hydrodynamic processes taking place in the system, including waves. The average wave regime was determined from numerical simulations of different scenarios of the wind regime in the Colombia Bay. SWAN model was used to simulate the waves in the bay and SMC model was used to simulate the waves in detail around the mouth and the currents associated with breaking waves. The results show that the swell waves have little influence on the wave regime into the Colombia Bay and that the wave average regime and currents are strongly influenced by the intra-annual variability of the wind regime in the study area.

Palavras-chave : Colombia Bay; numerical simulation; mean regime; sea waves; swell waves.
