Models and Mapping Tools - Introduction
The section describes the detailed model components and mapping tools that were developed and/or used within iCOASST. When the web site is complete in July 2016, it will provide details of each model, and where appropriate allow the models to be downloaded, provide example input and output files, and contact details to the model originator. In most cases the models are open source as explained under each model. The software used to develop Coastal and Estuarine System Maps is also available for download. We hope it will be applied around the UK and further afield. The section also includes details on the model compositions that were developed in the Liverpool Bay and Suffolk pilot sites, including the OpenMI standard used for coupling models in runtime.
