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.
