Input Files tab: For specifying ambient (boundary) file hydrographic data, Event files (fish farm loading, feed, mortality, move among pens, harvest, etc.) and current meter data for 2D operation.
Bathymetry tab: AquaModel accepts bathymetry from simple, single depth designation (see "Default Bottom Depth" in the array tab), to ASCII files of latitude/longitude/depth as well as vector based imagery sources. As shown in the image here, the system allows blending of primary (coarse) and detailed (high resolution) sources to improve near field resolution near net pens for benthic effects determination while also allowing far-field bathymetry from readily available global sources used to simulate pelagic water column effects. For complex bathymetry sources, a utility to preprocess the data is provided that organizes the data into the grid used by AquaModel and creates a rapidly accessible file to allow faster project boot up and operation than if raw data were accessed upon each use.
