The August 2014 edition of the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) featured a paper by DRBC staff members John Yagecic and Namsoo Suk entitled "Automation of a Hydrodynamic Model of the Delaware Estuary for Rapid Water Quality Simulations of Pollutant Releases." This paper discusses DRBC's hydrodynamic model and DRBC-developed applications that retrieve freshwater inflow and tidal boundary time series data. Overnight, every night, these data are input to the model, and it is automatically run. The model and its associated outputs are particularly useful in the event of an accidental pollutant release to the Delaware Estuary, as the model simulates its transport.

For over forty years, JAWRA, the scientific journal of the American Water Resources Association, has been one of the preeminent scholarly publications on multidisciplinary water resources issues, providing water resources managers and decision makers access to high quality science and research presented from a variety of perspectives. Published bi-monthly, it features original papers characterized by their broad approach to water resources issues; all papers are refereed prior to publication.
