Pre/post processing training

First go to the FES2012 directory:

cd ~/monday/FES2012

Define GENESIS environment variable:

export GENESIS=~/softs/xscan

Then edit FES2012.startup:

kate FES2012.startup&

Invoking xscan:

$GENESIS/bin/xscan -s <<startup filename>>

Example:

$GENESIS/bin/xscan -s FES2012.startup
Standard visualisation under xscan (sirocco-genesis)
  1. Startup files
  2. bathymetry: plotting and editing
  3. shorelines
  4. model outputs
    1. 2D (layers) display
    2. 3D (sections and profiles) display
  5. controlling plot paramaters and printing
  6. GIS: using geo-referenced images
Unstructured mesh generation and editing
  1. exercise I : automatic mesh generation with ztugo
