Metadata to run the SLIM model to simulate flatback post-hatchling dispersal in the Great Barrier Reef

This dataset contains the metadata used to run the hydrodynamic SLIM model and particle dispersal simulations. The metadata is part of the PhD thesis of Natalie Wildermann.

    • Descriptor

      This dataset contains the SLIM model application, and the metadata files to run the simulations of flatback post-hatchling dispersal in the Great Barrier Reef. Scripts are run by typing the name of the file in the SLIM application. The script to run the hydrodynamic model is called "sGBRHydro-monthlynormalwind-neapspring-202days.txt". The scripts for each scenario are named "Turtles_XXXXX.txt". The folder "data", the text files named "ScXXX", and the file "*.msh" are all input files for the models. Supporting material includes a document (Masterfiles-outputs guidelines) showing which Masterfile was used to create each output as well as the releasing locations and corresponding tag number (ID of the location) for each set of files.
