Flushing of the port of Ensenada using a SIBEO wave-driven seawater pump

Steven Peter Czitrom, Cesar Coronado and Ismael Nuñez

Vol. 2 (2007), No. 8, 1459–1469

A SIBEO wave-driven seawater pump is proposed to inject clean and oxygen-rich seawater from outside the port of Ensenada, Baja California, to promote flushing in the more stagnant sections of the harbor. Results from a simple two-dimensional numerical model of the port hydrodynamics shed light on how the tides cannot on their own adequately flush the system. A three-dimensional model, which includes thermal stratification, illustrates how the pumped seawater ventilation can spread throughout the harbor via a density channel set up by the seasonal thermocline.
