Preliminary simulations

Please note that these simulations are currently being developed and tested. We are still working out some problems with our surface forcing conditions, so these are to be viewed only with the overall big picture idea of the model potential in mind. (These simulations are from early April 2019, here we are still having problems particularly with our surface forcing, however, it is improved over the last set of simulations here).

The final simulations are already made and can be found here

Sea surface temperature velocity magnitude (color) with sea surface velocity vectors (arrows) zoomed in around the main island of Mahe for 8 days at the beginning of 2005. Note the island wake signature appears not only in the velocity but also as colder water in the lee of the islands.
