Build your limited area ocean model with the SURF platform

SURF is a Relocatable Ocean Modeling platform enabling the setup of limited area, nested models.


Limited area ocean forecasting requires to consider several different aspects of the initialization process

Coastline Bathymetry River runoffs Initial condition from large scale model fields Surface atmospheric forcing Lateral open boundary conditions from large scale model fields Tidal forcing Specific parameter settings for the parametrization of physical processes SURF
