Milestone 2 – WebMARVL-lite Testing.

WebMARVL-liteThe first acceptance criteria for the MARVL Early Activity project was to ensure that it could be configured for the Derwent Estuary and that model outputs produced were acceptably related to observations, both of these passed with flying colors.

Milestone two involves the introduction of the portal (webMARVL-lite) that allows registered users to configure data sources and the model environment. Specifically we were looking to allow users to:

  • Specify a time period;
  • Specify a region (bounding box); and
  • Select a source of surface and boundary forcing from a list of datasets;

WebMARVL-lite would then automatically extract a sub-set of the data files required to run on the native (original) grid and package these files into one downloadable archive ready for using elsewhere, a HPC environment for example.

MARVL Early Activity Milestone 1.

 MARVL ServerThe first step in the development of MARVL is a demonstration of functionality off South East TASmania (SETAS). The following report, submitted to NeCTAR for milestone 1, describes a series of comparisons between results from an automatically-configured model of the SETAS and satellite and in situ observations.
