Modelling water and solute fluxes
cmf is a programming library to create hydrological models, which are highly modular and connectible to other models developed using a multiple hypotheses background and is based on the finite volume method Although written in C++, its primary usage is to be compiled as an extension to other programming languages, using SWIG. Researchers can build individual models, targeting their scientific question by using the library objects like water storages, boundary conditions, fluxes and solvers. cmf uses the finite volume method to set up a wide range of models of water flow through your study area. Resulting models can range from lumped conceptual models to fully distributed darcian models and everything in between.
cmf is published as free software under GPLv3. (c) 2007-2017 by Philipp Kraft and the Institute of Landscape Ecology and Resources Management, Justus-Liebig Universität Gießen.
