This is the website of the Gulf Model Community. This community consists of a growing number of members that use and develop the open source models for the Gulf region. The aim of this community is to share knowledge and models to provide a good and continuously developing basis for marine projects and research in this region.

This website provides a platform for availability and continuous development of the process-based, hydrodynamic flow model describing the Gulf system as well as for related (future) wave, water quality and ecological models. The open models from this community can be used and further developed by interested parties. The community and the knowledge in this field grows when improvements to the models and knowledge base made by members are fed back to the community. Interested parties are very welcome to join and contribute to this community and can contact us here.

On 13 January 2021, we've organized our first Gulf Community Webinar, where we presented the concept of the Gulf Community and the latest developments of the Delft3D Arabian Gulf Hydrodynamic Model. The webinar screencast is available to watch back if you click on the link below.
