CROCO is an oceanic modeling system built upon ROMS_AGRIF and maintained by IRD, INRIA, CNRS, IFREMER and SHOM, French institutes working on environmental sciences and applied mathematics. An important objective for CROCO is to resolve very fine scales (especially in the coastal area), and their interactions with larger scales. It includes new capabilities such as a non-hydrostatic solver, ocean-wave-atmosphere coupling, evolving sediment dynamics and marine biogeochemistry, new high-order numerical schemes for advection and mixing, and a dedicated I/O server (XIOS). A toolbox for pre- and post-processing, CROCO_TOOLS, accompanies the source code. CROCO will keep evolving and integrating new capabilities in the following years.
