The courses will cover the numerical methods used to discretize and solve problems by computer simulation, and also cover community codes used in the field, such as:

COMCOT, the Cornell multi-grid coupled tsunami model

COULWAVE, the Cornell University long and intermediate wave modeling package

GeoClaw, the two-dimensional depth-averaged finite-volume code from the University of Washington tsunami modeling group

COAMPS, the coupled ocean/atmosphere prediction system of the Naval Research Laboratory

ADCIRC, the US Navy’s finite-element coastal circulation model

FVCOM, the 3D coastal ocean circulation model developed by University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. FVCOM is being used in 38 countries by more than 1000 registered users and institutions.
