University of Miami Wave Model (UMWM)
A third-generation spectral ocean wave model.
This is the reference implementation of UMWM, described by Donelan et al. (2012). UMWM solves the wave energy balance equation on a curvilinear grid. It has been used to simulate:
- Global swell and windsea
- Waves in coastal and hurricane conditions
- Wave-induced material transport (Stokes drift)
- Ancient Martian seas and methane lakes on Titan
- Waves in laboratory settings such as wave tanks
Getting the code
git clone --recursive https://github.com/umwm/umwm
- GNU, Intel, or Cray Fortran compiler
- NetCDF for I/O
- MPI for parallel processing (optional)
Edit the following variables in the top-level Makefile:
FC: Fortran compiler (e.g.
mpif90for parallel builds)
FCFLAGS: Flags to pass to the Fortran compiler
CPPFLAGS: Pre-processor flags -- set to
-DMPIif building for parallel execution, and leave blank for serial builds.
Path to the NetCDF library must be set as
NETCDF environment variable.
If your library is installed in non-standard directories (something
$NETCDF/lib for library files and
$NETCDF/include for modules)
NETCDFINC variables in
umwm will be built in the top-level directory.
Auxilliary tools executables will be built in
Documentation will be built in
Running in serial mode:
Running in parallel, for example on 16 cores:
mpiexec -n 16 ./umwm
Read the docs for more information.

UMWM has also been improved by a number of open source contributors.
