The CSDMS Help System

ChesROMS

ChesROMS is a community ocean modeling system for the Chesapeake Bay region. The model is built based on the Rutgers Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS, http://www.myroms.org/) with significant adaptations for the Chesapeake Bay.

Model introduction

ChesROMS is based on 3-D primitive equation physical circulation model ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling System) with extensions on coupling with water column ecology and nutrient cycles for the Chesapeake Bay. The model consists of important components for retrospective and near real time data acquisition and prep- and post- processing to make the model suitable for hindcast, nowcast and short time forecast of the Bay wide physics and ecology.
