Developing a Pilot Operational Oceanography System for an Enclosed Basin
by Stamatios Petalas, Ioannis Mamoutos, Agisilaos-Alexandros Dimitrakopoulos, Angeliki Sampatakaki, Vassilis Zervakis
Abstract:
The first stages of the development of a pilot oceanographic observatory for an enclosed basin (Kalloni Gulf, Lesvos, Greece) are described. The focus of the present work is related to the estimation of the water exchange with the open sea, using a numerical model of the region, volume flux measurements based on current velocity, and sea-level measurements. Three different methods of assessment of the exchange are described and evaluated, in order to select a reference method to calibrate submarine telephone cable measurements. The high-resolution coastal circulation model for the enclosed sea, nested in a larger-domain model, is developed and evaluated against in situ data, focusing on the adequate representation of the exchange and the hydrographic structure in the basin. Monitoring the water level is selected as the best-suited method for estimating the water exchange in hourly-to-weekly time scales. The model reproduces adequately the tidal exchange and sea-level response, as well as the hydrographic characteristics of the basin. The cable voltage measurements exhibit tidal signals overwhelmed by low-frequency noise, possibly attributable to circuitry and ground failures; however, the most suitable method for estimating exchanges of the basin with the open sea appears to be sea-level monitoring.
