Within EMS, there are currently two supported dynamic cores for solving hydrodynamic variables:

1.) SHOC – Sparse Hydrodynamic Ocean Model; and,

2.) COMPAS – Coastal Ocean Marine Prediction Across Scales.

SHOC is evaluated on an orthogonal curvilinear grid, whilst COMPAS is evaluated on an unstructured mesh. See the respective pages for more detail.
