 sirocco-genesis is an interactive graphic user interface for model pre/post-processing (structured and unstructured grids) and database editing. It has basics Geographical Information System capabilities linked with numerical models pre/post-processing utilities. The most useful sections allows you to:

  • build quality structured/unstructured meshes from scratch (automated processing and interactive editing)
  • display many popular netcdf gridded database in their geographical context (MERCATOR-Ocean, Symphonie, ROMS, MARS, WW3, ECMWF, WRF, ...):
    • layer display
    • vertical profiles and sections
    • horizontal sections
    • time series etc...
  • display/edit shorelines and ocean bathymetry dataset
  • create quality printing files (true postscript, GIF, JPEG, etc...)
  • and many other things...



    sirocco-genesis software distribution is based on Mercurial and automake tools. New releases are routinely produced to fit users needs and fix bugs. genesis is available through the Mercurial repository at

    The repositories are available from To access the repositories you must:

    • add the following lines in your ~/.hgrc:
      # If and only if this fingerprint is not given in your hg config,
      #   then it will be shown in the output of the following command:
      # hg clone --insecure = cc:9b:9c:f9:5a:a9:d5:6f:5b:0a:fa:30:9a:a4:6c:de:2c:11:47:bb
    • set your https_proxy environnement variable if you have to use a proxy to browse the web

    Additional information for Mercurial depot download is available in

    Instructions for depot installation and update

    At first installation, you need to clone the depot by using in a local directory: 

    genesis-depot> hg clone .

    Autotools suite is necessary to install the local depot. First initialize the "configure" command :

    genesis-depot> aclocal
    genesis-depot> autoreconf -si

    Latter on, you can follow genesis developments and fixing by routinely updating the depot:

    genesis-depot> hg pull
    genesis-depot> hg update

    After depot update, you will need to re-compile (see next section).

    We occasionally provide tar ball distribution archive. Latest version release (6.1.8, 26/03/2015) is available here download-button .

    See following instructions for installation and compiling.



    A user guide for installation is available here.


    Minimal dataset for a quick start

    In case you are going through your first sirocco-genesis installation, you probably need to download a minimal database (color files, shorelines, bathymetry...) to start playing with the graphical interface.

      Documentation (under construction)

      the painful side of the story... We are now feeding the user manual and documentation pages, but the way is long...
