GARCIA, FRANCISCO; PALACIO, CARLOS  e  GARCIA, URIEL. SIMULATION OF HYDRODYNAMIC CONDICTIONS AT SANTA MARTA COASTAL AREA (COLOMBIA). Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2012, vol.79, n.174, pp.119-126. ISSN 0012-7353.

Hydrodynamic conditions of Santa Marta coastal area were determined using a 3D hydrodynamic model, RMA10. The model was previously calibrated and validated for two different periods (dry season and rainy season). A good fit between measurements and simulations was found. For the year 2001, the model predicted current magnitude and current velocity at 40 meters deep in the water column. A maximum current magnitude of 12 cm/s was found. Current magnitude distribution showed an occurrence of 30%, for ranges of 2 and 4cm/s, and 4 and 6cm/s. Speeds up to 12 cm/s appeared with a frequency lower than 1%. In the analysis of simulated data it was found that the major axis direction of the current was from 62 to 242 degrees.
