EFDC Wind Shear and Wind Sheltering


Does EFDC and EFDC Explorer allow specification of wind speed and wind direction time-series to calculate internal wind shear stresses? Also, can one specify in the model a spatially-varying wind dampening or sheltering coefficient to simulate the dampening effects of submersed aquatic vegetation on wind shear stresses at the water surface?

Thanks in advance for your replies.


Hi David,

The answer to your questions are all yes, EFDC_Explorer allows you to do this.
