A THREE-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL FOR BAROCLINIC DYNAMIC IN THE MALACCA STRAIT

Taufiq Iskandar et al.

Abstract


The circulation in the Malacca Strait is simulated using a three-dimensional
baroclinic numerical model. The circulation model is
derived from the combined effects of tides, wind, meteorological
forcings, temperature and salinity. The computational results produced
pattern of general circulation and also sea surface temperature and
salinity. In the present study, the pattem of current circulation in the
Malacca Strait coincided with the work [7].

Keywords: Three-dimensional numerical model; Baroclinic circulation;
Sea surface temperature and salinity; Malacca Strait
