6.1 Objective

The student should be able to run a tidal model on a workstation (such as the Sparc 2, a Cray YMP, or a CM5), obtain results, and plot those for different trials. Also, the student should manipulate data input to the program, and this will provide an introductory experience in ocean modeling. The practical application in this exercise is a tidal prediction model for the Persian Gulf.
