The Bay-Delta SCHISM is  an open source computer sofware simulating the three dimensional water flow and water quality in the San Francisco Bay Delta estuary. It has been used to study a wide range of physical and biological processes in the Bay/Delta, such as saltwater intrusion, tempory barrier operation, flood inundation, sediment transport, and fish migrations. The project is a collaboration between the California Department of Water Resources and the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS).
