Surface currents in the bay of Los Angeles

In this example, AGRIF has been included in an ocean model in order to reach a very high resolution in the bay of Los Angeles, in order to study the transport of sediments and pollutants. The movie represents the surface temperature on the root grid resulting of a series of embedded grids of increasing resolution.
The ocean model, ROMS, is developed at UCLA and Rutger's University. Simulations were made by Patrick Marchesiello (UCLA).
