--- 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.

ADCIRC will run in "met.-only" mode.  In this mode, only routines corresponding to meteorological forcing are called, i.e. no water levels nor velocities are computed.  This is a convenient way to quickly read in and write out meteorological data files.  Note that by changing DT, you can speed up this "simulation".  More specifically, since the only things being output are meteorological data, you can set DT equal to the time interval you wish met. data to be output, and then set [[NSPOOLM]] and/or [[NSPOOLGW]] to 1 (output every time step).

This file contains the majority of the parameters required to run both the 2DDI and 3D versions of ADCIRC and the information to drive the model with harmonic boundary conditions (either elevation or flux). This file is required to run the ADCIRC model.

Tips and Tricks

Meteorological-Only Mode

By setting the following:
NOUTV = 0
NOUTGV = 0
NOUTE = 0
NOUTGE = 0
NHSTAR = 0
ADCIRC will run in "met.-only" mode, a quick and convenient way to read in and write out meteorological data files. In this mode, only routines necessary for meteorological forcing are called, i.e. no water levels nor velocities are computed. Note that by changing DT, you can speed up this "simulation". More specifically, since the only things being output are meteorological data, you can set DT equal to the time interval you wish met. data to be output, and then set the NSPOOLM and/or NSPOOLGW (the local and global met. output intervals) to 1 (i.e. output every time step).
