A set of python modules for tsunami and flood modelling

Project description Latest Version


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 package with some C extensions (and an optional fortran extension). At present ANUGA has not been ported to python 3. We recommend using python 2.7

Developed at Geoscience Australia and Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University.
