I'm modeling the wind setup over an elongated lake approximately 12 km long and was running RMA2 to estimate the wind setup on one end of the lake. I was not sure what are the wind speed units that RMA2 uses as input. I changed the projection units to meters and I'm using m/s but there was no indication in the users manual of which wind speed units I should use to input the hourly wind speed. Also, the lake has very minimal inflow and outflow, and I'm only interested in the wind setup. Is there a way to get away with running RMA2 with Boundary conditions of let's say fixed discharge in = discharge out, without having to specify a water level at the downstream? Thanks Tadros
