System Integration Work Unit


The System Integration work unit is developing MORPHOS into a user-friendly integrated system of fully coupled coastal process modeling tools.

A physics-based modeling capability must necessarily link the simulation of winds, water levels, waves, currents, sediment transport, and coastal response (erosion, accretion, breaching) during extreme events in an integrated system. Both a serial and parallelized version of a computational coupler will link the atmosphere, circulation, waves, and nearshore dynamics models for application on desktop computers or high-performance computing resources. The computational coupler will employ a two-way coupling scheme and result in significant improvements in computational time when compared to file based approaches.
