A fundamental problem in shelf modeling has been how to determine the boundary conditions at the open water side. Using a barotropic model (Csanady, 1978) with a geostrophic velocity in the alongshore direction and a linear bottom friction proportional to the depth averaged velocity, Wang (1982) showed that the along shore currents caused by the opean ocean pressure gradient forcing are strong at the slope, and weak at the shelf...
