Model Information
For more information about this model, go to www.myroms.org
Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution is based on the cartesian or spherical coordinate system. Horizontal direction grid uses orthogonal curvilinear grid. In the vertical, free surface terrain following is used.
Temporal Resolution
User defined time step vary based on model convergence requirements.
Outputs
Model can produce netCDF files. Post processers provide output visualization and datasets for use in other programs.
