Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    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.

  2. Type: full

    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.

  3. Type: note

    This dataset consists of a zip archive containing the SLIM application and metadata files in .txt format and supporting documentation in MS Word (.docx) and Open Document (.odt) format.

  4. Type: note

    The SLIM software used in this study is undergoing a licensing process at the time of publication, and is regrettably not available for public use at the present time. It is available upon request. Please contact Dr. Jonathan Lambrechts (jonathan.lambrechts@uclouvain.be), and request a copy of the executable file: “slim-O-32_January-2015.exe”.
