What is ANUGA?

ANUGA (pronounced “AHnooGAH”) is open-source software for the simulation of the shallow water equation, in particular it can be used to model tsunamis and floods.

ANUGA is a python 3 package with some C and Cython extensions (and an optional fortran extension).

ANUGA is developed at Geoscience Australia, Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University and volunteers.

Althought ANUGA was created in a collaboration by Geoscience Australia and Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University, it is now developed and maintained by a community of volunteers.
