ROMS/TOMS Plotting Package
ROMS has a very powefull plotting package written in F77 using NCAR's GKS plotting library
. This is an old package that has evolved a lot over the last 15-years. I started writing it in 1991 when I was post-doc at Harvard University. It is a very complex plotting package since it plots hundreds of different primary
fields. A primary field
is one read from input ROMS NetCDF files (e.g. potential temperature) whereas a secondary field
is a derived field (e.g. Bernolli function) computed from primary fields.
There are basically four programs that plots black/white or color fill contours and overlays from horizontal (cnt.F
) or vertical cross-sections (sec.F
). It is a great tool for quickly ploting hundreds of plots and browsing a solution.
To check-out the plotting package from ROMS repository enter
svn checkout https://www.myroms.org/svn/src/plot MyPlotDir
svn checkout --username <username> https://www.myroms.org/svn/src/plot MyPlotDir
with your ROMS user name.
