COHERENS is a three-dimensional hydrodynamic multi-purpose model for coastal and shelf seas, which is coupled to biological, resuspension and contaminant models, and resolves mesoscale to seasonal scale processes. The program has been developed over the period of 1990-1998 by a multinational European group, as part of the MAST projects PROFILE, NOMADS and COHERENS funded by the European Union.
