Summary:
The Caloosahatchee estuary system is connected to Lake Okeechobee through the Caloosahatchee River canal. This study examines the release of fresh water from Franklin Dam and its effect on the salinity distribution of the estuary. A one-dimensional model (EDASM-B) has been developed for the simulation of the hydrodynamics and salinity distribution of the estuarine system. By changing the input parameters, various anticipated physical scenarios can be assessed and a management plan can be developed.
