Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS): Scenario editing
The scenario editor can be reached with the button NEW from:
A new scenario will be generated, with the default name: NEW, owned by the current user.
- the scenario selector
- the main scenario page.
The editor page supports setting of the following scenario characteristics:
In the OBJECT header:
- scenario name
- scenario short description (META data)
On the main page:
- Simulation (model run control) parameters
- start date for the simulation, default start time is 00:00 hours;
- duration of the simulation (current default for the user edited model time series of pollutant influx: 120 hours)
- Model output time step (default: 1 hour)
- Model domain and geometry
- model domain, can be selected from the set of existing domain; at the model domain selector,
a new domain can also be defined for later selection. However, this merchanism assumes the the
necessary bathymetry data are available for the entire (master) domain.
A dedicated raster/pixel editor can be used to
digitize a land-see border and bathymetry.
- Boundary conditions
- Choice of lateral boundary condition: open or closed.
- Initial conditions
- initial (background) salinity
- Meteorology, surface forcings
- choice of surface forcings: none, observed meteorology (for historical scenarios only),
prognostic meteorological models MM5 or WRF.
- Input parameters
- pollutant (brine) concentration (salinity)
- average pollutant flow
- selction of a time-series of hourly pollutant flow,
selection from a repertoir of available (hourly) time series data,
with the possibility to create and manually edit a new time series.
- Output configuration
- Selection of a monitoring station from a list of existing monitoring station to
record model output in a simulated instrument at that location,
can be used to generate compliance criteria for the multi-criteria evaluation and optimization.
The monitoring sdtation selector also offers the possibility to define interactively
a new (simulated) monitoring station.
