For information about the Chesapeake Interactive Modeling Project (CHIMP) please visit:

http://www.d.umn.edu/~jaustin/CHIMP.html

It uses ROMS as a didactic GUI to teach the basic circulation in the Chesapeake Bay. It can used for formal education (K12, undergraduate, graduate) , informal education (science museums), and resource managers. The user control the forcing (wind stress and freshwater flux) and the circulation solution is displayed graphycally.

The CHIMP is meant only as a proof-of-concept of a real-time, interactive modeling tool based around a research-grade model core. We are currently looking for funds to do this "right"- it's current form is a bit rough. Still, I encourage people to download the executable and have a look.
