ROMS is not a "black box" model that can be setup and run easily for
realistic applications; if this is your interest, we recommend you
establish a collaboration with experienced scientists that already
have an application in your area of interest or find a simpler model.
ROMS is intended for users interested in ocean modeling and requires
an extensive oceanographic background to setup the model and analyze
the resulting data to ensure that you are getting a correct solution.
ROMS is one of the most advanced and complex numerical models in the
world. The learning Curve is very steep but it is our experience that
the model grows on the user when he/she realizes its capabilities.
