What is ANUGA?

ANUGA (pronounced "AHnooGAH") is open-source software for the simulation of the shallow water equation, in particular it can be used to model tsunamis and floods.

ANUGA is a python package with some C extensions (and an optional fortran extension). At present ANUGA has not been ported to python 3. We recommend using python 2.7
