WHETGEO essentials

Water, HEat and Transport in GEOframe  (WH?ETGEO) is the set of components which was conceived and developed to substitute GEOtop. It with GEO-SPACE more precisely. Its design is more complex than GEOtop, since it includes various modelling solutions, 1D, 2D, 3D (coming soon) and additional processes can be added without large efforts. 2D and 3D versions can work with an unstructured grids and there is a lot of flexibility to be exploited to pursue new ideas that were not even conceivable with GEOtop. 

At present the best presentations of the models and the ideas are obtained by reading the Niccolò Tubini Ph.D. Thesis and the paper on GMD just published. WHETGEO + GEOSPACE have a dedicated summer school whose 1st edition was celebrated recently.  The index of GEOframe Schools can be found here.

Other contributions will come soon.
