Coastal Modeling System Basics
using CMS 5.1 and SMS 13.0

Webinar: 06 - 10 May 2019
1300 - 1500 Eastern (1200 - 1400 Central) each day

The Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) held a 5-day series of training webinars focused on Version 5.1 of the Coastal Modeling System (CMS) within the newly released Surface-Water Modeling System (SMS) Version 13.0. Introductory materials show how to develop and implement a CMS model within the new SMS 12.3/13.x conceptual model framework as well as new features added to CMS Version 5.1.
