The supplemental material contains the input files for setting up a 3D baroclinic model based on the Semi-implicit Cross-scale Hydroscience Integrated System Model (SCHISM), supplementing the description of model setup in Ye et al. (2019; associated publication).

The SCHISM version used for the simulation was r5082 in the SCHISM svn repository. A compressed file (setup.tar.gz) is provided, which can be extracted with common zip/unzip software on Unix/Windows/Mac (such as gzip, winzip, 7-zip, etc.). Since the dataset is intended for conducting a SCHISM simulation, readers/users should familiarize themselves with the SCHISM model system first.

The SCHISM manual is at:; the manual version closest to the model setup is V5.6.1.

Additionally, there is an online tutorial specifically made for this model setup at:
