You will find the following folders when downloading the source code:

  1. A folder called "forcing" which contains the forcing and bathymetry files.
  2. A folder called "plotting" which contains a program for plotting the predicted deposition ("plot_wp.m") as well as shoreline data to make the plot pretty.
  3. A manuscript "Ma_Friedrichs_etal_2009_MarGeol_inprep_29Jul.pdf" that describes the latest application of this version of the model.

To run the model, simply put all the files in the same directory, set that directory as the default directory for Matlab, and type "WSGFAM_131" in the MatLab Command Window. To plot the output, type "plot_wp". The model, which simulates several months of deposition on the Waiapu New Zealand shelf, takes about 15 minutes to run on a laptop.
