CROCO Users' Meeting

CROCO version 1.0 will soon be ready and we feel that it is time to introduce its capabilities to the coastal modeling community at large. The goal of CROCO is to unite coastal modelers behind a modern code that can bridge the gap between fine scale non-hydrostatic processes and deep water processes. CROCO is a new oceanic modeling system built upon ROMS_AGRIF, the non-hydrostatic kernel of Symphonie-NH, and MARS3D interfaces. It is in the process of being coupled to many components as: atmosphere, waves, sediments, biogeochemical cycles, and ecosystems.

The first CROCO User Meeting will be held on May 22-24, 2017, at Observatoire Midi Pyrénées, in Toulouse, France (20 mn from the city center).

The meeting is open to CROCO users and all coastal modelers with a possible interest in CROCO capabilities. The format of the meeting is as follows :

  • Day 1: Presentation of CROCO’s capabilities by the lead developers + existing CROCO applications
  • Day 2: Oral (and poster if necessary) presentations by participants on their current research and on their views on limitations and necessary development of regional/coastal models.
  • Day 3 (half day): Moving forward – working groups will be tasked to better define the community’s needs

Confirmed speakers are:

Franck DUMAS: What is the CROCO project? (30 minutes)

Rachid BENSHILA: Detailed introduction of CROCO 1.0 (code description, capabilities, compilation options, outputs, etc.) (45 minutes)

Francis AUCLAIR: Non-hydrostatic option (45 minutes)

Laurent DEBREU: Multi-grid option (45 minutes)

Swen JULLIEN: Coupling (atmosphere, waves, ...) (45 minutes)

Rachid BENSHILA: Near shore capabilities (45 minutes)
