VISIR-1.b: peer-reviewed paper and source code published

A new milestone in VISIR development is now achieved: following last February’s publication of the model source code on Zenodo, a peer-reviewed paper describing the new model version 1.b has been published this week on the Geoscientific Model Development journal.

The paper includes derivation of the equations for vessel advection from ocean currents, validation of the numerics vs. analytical benchmarks, evaluation of the computational performance, assessment of carbon intensity (EEOI) savings on transatlantic crossings using both ocean gravity waves and currents, development of new diagrams and indicators for comparing impact on several routes in both North and South Atlantic ocean.
