Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model is a prognostic, unstructured-grid, free-surface, 3D primitive equation coastal ocean circulation model developed at UMASSD and WHOI. VisIt draws FVCOM data from a 2-year Gulf of Maine simulation during a rising tide in August of 1999. The bathymetry is shown in gray while the sea surface is transparent blue. A surface of constant density (1025 kg m3) is transparent orange with its intersection on two vertical sections is shown in black. The vectors show a few of the model velocities on the constant density surface as the rising tide rushes in to fill the gulf of Maine.
