This package is a framework for building a library of large eddy simulations (LES) of ocean surface boundary layer turbulence — the LESbrary — with Oceananigans.jl. The LESbrary will archive turbulence data for both idealized and realistic oceanic scenarios.

Adding LESbrary.jl to a julia environment

To add LESbrary.jl to your julia environment, type

julia> using Pkg

julia> Pkg.add(url="https://github.com/CliMA/LESbrary.jl.git")

at the REPL. This will allow you to write using LESbrary in your scripts (and thereby run the scripts in /examples).

Accessing data generated by LESbrary.jl

Output from LESbrary.jl simulations --- currently somewhat haphazardly organized --- is accessible at https://engaging-web.mit.edu/~alir/lesbrary/
