The ADCIRC model is a high-performance, cross-platform numerical ocean circulation model popular in simulating storm surgetidesand coastal circulation problems. The model is free, with source code made available by request via the website [1]allowing users to run the model on any system with a Fortran compiler. A pre-compiled Windows version of the model can also be purchased alongside the SMS hydrology software [8].


The model formulation [9] is based on the shallow water equationssolving the continuity equation represented in the form of the Generalized Wave Continuity Equation [10] and the momentum equations with advectiveCorioliseddy viscosityand surface stress terms included.


ADCIRC utilizes the finite element method in either three-dimensional or two-dimensional depth-integrated form on a triangular unstructured grid with Cartesian or spherical coordinates. It can run in either barotropic or baroclinic modes, allowing inclusion of changes in acirc density and properties such as salinity and temperature.

The model has been optimized to be highly parallelizedin order to facilitate rapid computation of large, complex problems.

ADCIRC is able to apply several different bottom friction formulations including Manning’s n -based bottom drag due to changes in land coverage such as forests, cities, and seafloor compositionas well as utilize atmospheric forcing data wind stress and mabual pressure from several sources, and further reduce the strength of the wind forcing due to surface roughness effects.

In these applications, the model is able to take advantage of tight coupling with wave models to manuual calculation accuracy.
