Slarti - the FOAM boundary condition generator/editor
Slarti is a boundary condition generator/editor for
an input mask, topography, and/or bathymetry, Slarti will generate all the
necessary boundary condition files for FOAM's components which
require them (atmosphere, land, and ocean) and guarantee consistency
between them. Slarti also allows point-by-point editing of boundary
fields with a GUI.
Slarti requires a Java 1.6 or later runtime environment to run.
You can get Java from www.java.com.
Slarti 1.7 -released May, 2009

- New "Tools" menu.
- Improve river direction algorithm and add tool to find "lakes" under "Tools" menu.
- Remove bad assumptions about pathnames for files in an existing case. You can
now open an old case anywhere on your filesystem and Slarti will find all files.
- Bathymetry values between 0 and thickness of first level are set to ocean.
- 1.1.1: released Mar, 2005
- Ask about saving before exiting.
- 1.2: released May, 2005
- New view to edit ocean levels individualy
- 1.3: released Oct, 2005
- Allow definition of an "ocean" surface thermal type. These
are not handled by the ocean model but are treated as water for
- Define initial values for atmosphere files. Can use
analytic values or transfer from another NetCDF file.
This should remove the need to use slarti2ccm.F90
- 1.4: internal release
- Show cells with no current at each ocean level
- Save name includes path
- Show land mask at each ocean level.
- Output coupler files in NetCDF
- Bug fixes: name of mask file. Correct values for hybrid levels.
- 1.5: released May, 2006
- When adding ocean, set starting depth.
- Help appears in front when selected.
- (Source only: images in separate directory)
