 CROCO: Coastal and Regional Ocean COmmunity model

Over the last 2 decades, the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS) was developed between UCLA, Rutgers University and IRD. It is a three-dimensional numerical oceanic model intended for simulating the circulation, biogeochemical cycles, and sediment dynamics in various coastal regions and at high resolution. The IRD version of the model made use of the AGRIF grid refinement procedure developed at INRIA (Grenoble) and accompanied by a powerful toolbox for pre- and post-processing. This code is now transitioning to CROCO in a 5-year research project to develop a community model for coastal multiscale and multidisciplinary oceanography. The originality of this project relies on the sharing of experience from a consortium of several teams working on different models (ROMS, MARS, SNBQ, HYCOM).
