In order to efficiently carry out high-resolution simulations with the unstructured mesh version of SWAN, a parallel code is build
using message passing paradigm and tested on a commodity computer cluster. In parallelizing unstructured mesh version of SWAN,
we employ the same paradigm as applied in the circulation model ADCIRC (http://www.adcirc.org) and so the parallel version of the
unstructured mesh SWAN model uses the same domain decomposition and localized communication as the parallel version of ADCIRC.
For a proper use, version 50 or higher of ADCIRC must be employed.
For details on the implementation and use of the coupled ADCIRC + SWAN model, go to http://www.caseydietrich.com/swanadcirc/.
It is assumed that the unstructured mesh is stored in the file fort.14 and the associated model domain information is stored in fort.15 and that these files are yet available.
