The training provided both a hands-on tutorial of the system, as well as fundamental information about the modeling components. Tutorials and demonstrations were given by developers and expert users of WRF, SWAN, and ROMS on each model separately and how they interact. Users from around the world traded case studies, techniques, tips, new features, and additional tools for COAWST. Over 70 scientists from around the world attended the training on-site, while others utilized the presentation materials and recordings of the training made available online.
