Gale Ranch Northern California
hydraulic structure design for various components of a degraded creek
restoration plan. Reviewed existing hydraulic and hydrologic models for
accuracy and completeness, and indicated alternatives to meet problems
in prediction and model performance.
Hamilton Army Airfield Restoration San Francisco Bay, California
in a morphologic study to determine the best means of restoration of a
former airfield adjacent to San Pablo Bay, CA. Work included
development and application of a 2-dimensional hydrodynamic and
sediment transport model of proposed breaching activities designed to
restore the historic tidal marsh and confine contaminated materials
San Pablo Baylands Tidal Marsh Restoration San Francisco Bay, California
spatial analysis for pilot study and full scale restoration project to
indicate success in modeling tidal processes, especially sediment
deposition and preferential scour. Used a GIS to rank simulations for
the successful estimation of model parameters.
Napa Sonoma Marsh Restoration San Francisco Bay, California
the Danish Hydraulic Institute in the development of a comprehensive
hydrodynamic, sediment transport, and water quality model of the Napa
River, Sonoma Creek and the intervening marshlands and historic
saltponds. Developed custom code to allow the extraction of
geo-referenced cross sections from a very large terrain model and allow
direct import to the modeling system.
