SC34/NH10.2 ECS: Open-source software for simulating hillslope hydrology and stability
session of the incoming EGU meeting in Wien. This is a work in progress and material will follow in the next days.
Material to be included:
- Docker GEOtop,
- Preliminari to any operation is to install GEOtop 2.1 (Triest version) on your machine. To avoid the complication implied by different platform GEOtop has been compiled against Docker which is a lightweight, well supported mini virtual machine which run on most operating systems. The instructions on how to do it are available directly at: https://github.com/geotopmodel/docker (scroll down a little the page to see the instructions). Installing Docker is time consuming so, it is essential that participants to the pico session will download it before the session. Other information about the dockerized version of GEOtop can be found here.
- Other GEOtop information can be found in the GEOtop essential post
- Console OMS3,
- OMS3 is a framework to build environmental models. It is Java native but it supports also the inclusion of C/C++ and FORTRAN codes. In our case, GEOtop is a C++ code and the hillslope stability code is a Java one.
- First operation required in this case is the installation of OMS3 console. Its installation page is here.
