Projects - G-CAST - Application of GRID-computing in a coastal morphodynamics nowcast - forecast sistem
G-cast aims at combining the novel computational resources provided by Grid computing and the team expertise in the use of existing state-of-the-art numerical models to develop an exploratory analysis of the impact of climate changes on the long-term morphodynamic evolution of coastal zones. This goal will be achieved through
  • the adaptation of a suite of models within an existing morphodynamic modeling system to Grid-computing environment;
  • the integration of this modeling system in a nowcast-forecast computational system adapted for the Portuguese coast, and
  • its exploratory application to the analysis of climate change in the long-term morphodynamic dynamics of two contrasting coastal systems: the Óbidos lagoon and the Aveiro lagoon.
