Pagination or Media Count:
This report summarizes the framework and provides key findings of the Verification and Validation VV study for the Coastal Modeling System CMS, a product of the Coastal Inlets Research Program CIRP. There are three components of the study Verification, Calibration, and Validation, and these are termed for simplicity as VV herein and in the companion reports. This is the first report, Report 1, in a series of four reports, and it provides a synopsis of the major findings from the other three reports. Verification Validation was performed for three main components of the CMS CMS-Wave Report 2, CMS-Flow Report 3 and Sediment Transport and Morphology Change Report 4. This Summary is intended for engineers and scientists considering whether the CMS would be appropriate for their projects, after which they may study the other VV reports, and for managers and decision-makers so that they will have a succinct resource detailing the performance of each CMS component as well as the integrated modeling system.
