Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 3D
Spatial extent Regional-Scale
Model domain Coastal
One-line model description A state-of-the-art finite-element computer simulation program for coastal ocean circulation modeling
Extended model description The model is three-dimensional and fully nonlinear with a free surface, incorporates advanced turbulence closure, and operates in tidal time. Variable horizontal and vertical resolution are facilitated by the use of unstructured meshes of linear triangles in the horizontal, and structured linear elements in the vertical
