  • Key issues in storm surge and tsunami simulations and current status in the super-regional testbed on model evaluations in those applications
  • The FVCOM (2008) system v.3.1.6—unstructured-grid finite-volume community ocean model system that has been successful in many applications of estuarine, continental shelf and regional/open-ocean studies (Chen et al., 2006).
