Oceanweather (OWI) was well represented at the 2019 Advanced Circulation Model (ADCIRC) User’s Group Meeting held at the US Army Corps Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Lab (CHL) over May 20-21, 2019 in Vicksburg, MS. Several of the talks applied OWI atmospheric forcing to produce detailed ocean storm surge and tidal simulations. OWI both implements the ADCIRC model for their hindcast products such as GOMOS, GROW-FINE Caribbean-2 (GFC-2), and GROW-FINE East Coast (GF-EC) as well participates as a collaborating member of the ADCIRC community. Recent collaboration efforts published in JGR: Oceans and Ocean Modelling are detailed on our Recent Publications page.

A new flexible netCDF input method, which was co-developed by OWI, will be a major new feature in the latest version of the ADCIRC modeling system to be released later this year. Information about the proposed input format implementation can be found here.
