Detailed Description

Quoted from: http://ccrm.vims.edu/schismweb/ 

SCHISM modeling system is a derivative work from the original SELFE model (v3.1dc as of Dec. 13 , 2014). SCHISM has been implemented by Dr. Joseph Zhang (College of William & Mary) and other developers around the world, and licensed under Apache. SELFE was developed at the Oregon Health Sciences University. However, there are now significant differences between the two models.

SCHISM (Semi-implicit Cross-scale Hydroscience Integrated System Model) is an open-source community-supported modeling system based on unstructured grids, designed for seamless simulation of 3D baroclinic circulation across creek-lake-river-estuary-shelf-ocean scales. It uses a highly efficient and accurate semi-implicit finite-element/finite-volume method with Eulerian-Lagrangian algorithm to solve the Navier-Stokes equations (in hydrostatic form), in order to addresses a wide range of physical and biological processes. The numerical algorithm judiciously mixes higher-order with lower-order methods, to obtain stable and accurate results in an efficient way. Mass conservation is enforced with the finite-volume transport algorithm. It also naturally incorporates wetting and drying of tidal flats.

The SCHISM system has been extensively tested against standard ocean/coastal benchmarks and applied to a number of regional seas/bays/estuaries around the world (see 'Case study') in the context of general circulation, tsunami and storm-surge inundation, water quality, oil spill, sediment transport, coastal ecology, and wave-current interaction. SCHISM now includes many upgrades of the original SELFE code (v3.1dc); the major differences are summarized in Zhang et al. (Seamless cross-scale modeling with SCHISM, Ocean Modelling, 2016; see Publications).

Major Characteristics of SCHISM

  • Finite element/volume formulation
  • Unstructured mixed triangular/quadrangular grid in the horizontal dimension
  • Hybrid SZ coordinates or new LSC2 in the vertical dimension
  • Polymorphism: a single grid can mimic 1D/2DV/2DH/3D configurations
  • Semi-implicit time stepping (no mode splitting): no CFL stability constraints → numerical efficiency
  • Robust matrix solver
  • Higher-order Eulerian-Lagrangian treatment of momentum advection (with ELAD filter)
  • Natural treatment of wetting and drying suitable for inundation studies
  • Mass conservative, monotone, higher-order transport solver: TVD2; WENO
  • No bathymetry smoothing necessary
  • Very tolerant of bad-quality meshes in the non-eddying regime

Modeling system & application areas

  • 3D baroclinic cross-scale lake-river-estuary-plume-shelf-ocean circulations
  • Tsunami hazards
  • Storm surge
  • Sediment transport
  • Biogeochemistry/ecology/water quality
  • Oil spill
  • Short wave-current interaction
