UK FVCOM Workshops

This section outlines the discussions which took place at each UK FVCOM Workshop and who was there.

  • NOCL and PML present.
  • First time the FVCOM code was in the UK following Ricardo Torres' visit to Chen's laboratory.
  • Two half days.
  • People from PML, SAMS and NOCL present.
  • Focused on identifying problems with generating input files.
  • Discussed how best to coordinate collaborations between the three institutes present.
  • Set up this wiki and the code respoistory.
  • Two half days.
  • NOCL, HALCROW, PML, SAMS and Marine Scotland Science people present.
  • Focus on progress being made in setting up large scale models with calibration of those models.
  • Discussion on the surface heating inputs required.
  • First time FVCOM-ERSEM had been coupled and shown to work (in a preliminary sense).
  • New version of FVCOM distributed following Karen Amoudry's visit to Chen's laboratory.
  • Two half days.
  • Marine Scotland Science, PML, SAMS, NOCL, HALCROW (now CH2M Hill), University of Strathclyde, SEPA and IWFM (Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology) present.
  • Mainly a progress report from the people present at the last meeting (Halcrow/CS2M Hill, NOCL, PML, MSS and SAMS).
  • Introduction to FVCOM and the tools that have been built around it for the University of Strathclyde and SEPA.
  • Two half days.
  • Marine Scotland Science, PML, SAMS, NOCL, CH2M Hill, University of Strathclyde, BUET (remotely) present.
  • Two half days.
  • Marine Scotland Science, PML, SAMS, NOCL, Lancaster University, University of Strathclyde, Aklaplan NIVA
  • Two half days.
  • Marine Scotland Science, PML, SAMS, NOCL, University of Lancaster, University of Liverpool, Mott MacDonald
  • Themes included renewable energy impacts, tidal incursion into a deltaic system, coupling wave and currents, and biogeochemical coupling (FVCOM-ERSEM).
  • Two half days.
  • University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, MSS, PML, SAMS, NOCL, SEPA, Heriot-Watt University
  • Themes included updates to the latest version of FVCOM 4.0, nesting models and new modules, renewable energy impacts, coupling wave and currents, and biogeochemical coupling (FVCOM-ERSEM) and particle tracking.
  • Workshop was followed by the Scottish Shelf Model Workshop (another two half days).
