What is COHERENS?
COHERENS is a modelling system designed for a wide range of applications in coastal and shelf seas, estuaries, lakes and reservoirs. COHERENS follows a modular structure based on a numerical hydrodynamical model. It includes side-modules among which generic biological and sediment transport modules.
The development of COHERENS is led by researchers at RBINS in collaboration with worldwide scientists. COHERENS is available to the scientific community as a free and well-documented open source code.
ReCAP: Regional-scale assessment of the land-ocean Continuum ecosystems vulnerability to Anthropogenic Pressure
ReCAP is about describing the Land-Ocean Aquatic Continuum (LOAC) by coupling the estuarine model C-GEM and the North Sea model COHERENS. The objective is to analyze and predict the evolution of the LOAC with the very first boundless model that represents the North Sea from the river basins to the sea shelf and from the surface to the sediment.
