IndividualDisplacements.jl computes point displacements over a gridded domain. It is geared towards the analysis of Climate, Ocean, etc models (Arakawa C-grids are natively supported) and the simulation of material transports within the Earth System (e.g. plastics or planktons in the Ocean; dusts or chemicals in the Atmosphere).

Inter-operability with popular climate model grids via MeshArrays.jl is an important aspect. The package can read and write individual displacement collection files, including those generated by the MIT general circulation model. IndividualDisplacements's initial test suite is based on global ocean model simulations called ECCO (v4r2) and CBIOMES (alpha) (see Forget et al. 2015).

The movies highlighted above are from global_ocean_circulation.jl. The basic examples shown below are from solid_body_rotation.jl and random_flow_field.jl. For more, please report to the docs.

Would like to contribute?

Thank you for your interest in contributing to this package!

Please start by filing a ticket in the GitHub issue tracker if you think you’ve found a bug, found a potential fix for a bug, would like to suggest additional features, would like guidance on how to add features, or could help improve the documentation for example.

You can also send a GitHub pull request directly but filing a ticket first is often preferable e.g. to avoid duplicating efforts or confusion. For an example of how to work with pull requests, please refer to the MITgcm documentation.
