Marine Ecosystem Toolkit for Optimization and Simulation in 3-D

About Metos3D

What is Metos3D?

Metos3D is a collection of

  • simulation software (simpack)
  • optimization software (optpack)
  • chemical / biogeochemical / marine ecosystem models
  • transport and forcing data

that is based on the Transport Matrix Method.

What is Metos3D for?

Metos3D can be used for

  • simulation of
  • computation of annual periodic steady-states of
  • parameter estimates for

chemical / biogeochemical / marine ecosystem models coupled to global 3-D ocean circulation.

See: [Piwonski and Slawig, 2016]

Why was Metos3D developed?

In the field of climate research and ocean simulation, marine ecosystem models still entail the most uncertainties. Therefore

  • an application programming interface for biogeochemical models BGC API was designed and
  • a comprehensive, state-of-the-art, high-performance software based on PETSc was built around it.

See: [Piwonski and Slawig, 2016]

How do I use Metos3D?

Have a look into the Metso3D Documentation.
