Thematic Domain Analysis for Ocean Modeling

We just published our paper on the analysis of the ocean modeling domain. It provides answers on the characteristics of the domain, how scientists develop and research models, how they implement them, and how technologies and methods are applied to this endeavor. Based on them, software engineers can better apply their tools, methods and approaches to the scientific modeling domain to support the software side of the model development which suffers from a lack of engineering insight.

The paper is available as a pre-print on and the final version is available via 10.1016/j.envsoft.2022.105323
