ROMS/TOMS Test Cases

ROMS is distributed with several idealized and realistic applications that can be used for testing, benchmarking, process-oriented studies, accuracy of numerical algorithms, learning and training, and ocean modeling experimentation. They can also be used to evaluate the efficiency, accuracy, and robustness of its numerical and physical algorithms against the solutions produced by other ocean modeling systems. Analytical or semi-analytical solutions exist for some of these test cases and few metrics/scores can be computed to assess model skill. You can obtain these test cases from the repository. This repository gives you guidelines on how to configure and setup your own application. Each example provides all the necessary scripts to compile/link (build script) and run each ROMS test case.
