We are pleased to learn that the hydrodynamic reduced-order model (ROM) for the regeneration of surface currents in Gorgan Bay, Iran, presented in our research article, entitled ‘A ROM for the regeneration of surface currents in Gorgan Bay, Iran’ and published in the Journal of Hydroinformatics in 2018 (Kheirabadi et al. 2018), is of interest to the readers of this journal.

As Horsch and Fourniotis concluded in their discussion, the results of the MIKE3 FM model applied to wind induced flow in Gorgan Bay correspond to the model introduced by Csanady (1973), that demonstrated surface currents to be windward in shallower areas but leeward in deeper areas of a lake, causing an S-shaped cross-flow on the free surface. To support these findings, a ROM was developed by linking the MIKE3-FM model with proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) to simulate the wind induced surface...
