ROMSBuilder creates the new component in home directory under "~/.cmt/components". It is safer not to edit the directory. Once a component is successfully created the next one goes relatively faster. To open the project user should go to "My Project > ROMSBuilder". The new project can only be seen by the owner. To share the project with the rest of the community please contact CSDMS.
Notes:
Please wait for ROMSBuilder to finish before creating the next component. Overall run time is almost an hour for the first component.
"Performance efficient mode" is not meant for ROMSBuilder, hence please avoid setting it on the tab dialogs.
Default configuration settings is always that of UPWELLING. Please edit the config values to run your new roms component. +

SPARROW is designed to describe the spatial patterns in water quality and the factors that affect it. SPARROW models are developed using mass balance constraints to quantify the relation between stream constituent load (the mass of the constituent being transported by the stream) and the sources and losses of mass in watersheds. Thus the models are inherently designed to predict load (mass per time) for all stream reaches in the modeling region. However, the predictions of stream load can be modified to provide a variety of water-quality metrics that can support various types of assessments.
The SPARROW prediction metrics include constituent yields, concentrations, and source contributions to stream loads:
*Constituent yields
*Constituent concentrations
*Source contributions to stream loads +

SWAN can provide output on uniform, recti-linear spatial grids that are independent from the input grids and from the computational grid. In the computation with a curvi-linear computational grid, curvi-linear output grids are available in SWAN. This also holds for triangular meshes. An output grid has to be specified by the user with an arbitrary resolution, but it is of course wise to choose a resolution that is fine enough to show relevant spatial details. It must be pointed out that the information on an output grid is obtained from the computational grid by bi-linear interpolation (output always at computational time level). This implies that some inaccuracies are introduced by this interpolation. It also implies that bottom or current information on an output plot has been obtained by interpolating twice: once from the input grid to the computational grid and once from the computational grid to the output grid. If the input-, computational- and output grids are identical, then no interpolation errors occur.
In the regions where the output grid does not cover the computational grid, SWAN assumes output values equal to the corresponding exception value. For example, the default exception value for the significant wave height is -9. The exception values of output quantities can be changed by means of the QUANTITY command.
In nonstationary computations, output can be requested at regular intervals starting at a given time always at computational times. +
