Dynamics of Wind Setdown at Suez and the Eastern Nile Delta

Figure 7

An idealized angular bend of water in the Lake of Tanis.

Green represents land surface, white and blue represent water, and brown represents exposed lake bottom. Wind blows from the right at 28 m/s for 12 hours, and wind stress is uniform over the entire domain. The channel is originally 2 m deep and the banks are 1 m high; this bathymetry is comparable to lakes and rivers in the Nile delta during the spring.
