Short summary
The northern Gulf of Mexico is characterized by complex estuary–shelf–ocean interactions. We developed a 3-D model to represent these interactions. The model is validated with observational data and used to examine the remote influence of Mississippi–Atchafalaya freshwater discharge on Texas coastal systems. Numerical experiments reveal that the remote influence varies greatly under different wind conditions, suggesting great control from the shelf circulations on estuarine dynamics.
