CH3D-SSMS

Curvilinear-grid Hydrodynamics 3D - StormSurge Modeling System

CH3D-SSMS is a coastal hydrodynamic ocean, estuary and lakes model that captures complex near shore geometry effects, sediment transport, aquatic vegetation interactions, and water quality effects. The model can be paired with SWAN to include storm surge effects and wetting and drying processes.
