--- Welcome to the official ADCIRCWiki site! The site is currently under construction, with limited information. ---

For general information, see the ADCIRC site, ADCIRC FAQ, or the ADCIRC Wikipedia page. For model documentation not yet available on the wiki, see the ADCIRC site. New content is being continuously added to the ADCIRCWiki, and material from the main ADCIRC site will be gradually transitioned over to the wiki.

Fort.24 file

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The fort.24 file contains ocean self-attraction and loading (SAL) tides[1] that are used to force ADCIRC when NTIP=2 in the fort.15 file.


The OceanMesh2D function "Make_f24" can be used to generate the fort.24 file from data-assimilated tidal solutions.

File Format

See fort.24 file format for details.
