Matlab code to compute climatological Lagrangian Coherent Structures. Climatological Lagrangian Coherent Structures have been shown to be effective in identifying regions that persistently attract or isolate trajectories at the sea surface, while also identifying recurrent transport patterns and transport barriers. It is therefore known as the Climatological Isolation and Attraction Model within NETL DoE.

This repository also includes the information necessary to replicate the cCLS published in the paper which is freely available at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-23121-y .

The method is developed in: Duran, R., F. J. Beron-Vera, M. J. Olascoaga (2018). Extracting quasi-steady Lagrangian transport patterns from the ocean circulation: An application to the Gulf of Mexico. Scientific Reports, 8(1), 5218. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018- 23121-y

The method is successfully evaluated with a large satellite-tracked drifter dataset, and with a different ocean model in: Gough M.K., F. J. Beron-Vera, M. J. Olascoaga, J. Sheinbaum, J. Jouenno, R. Duran (2019). Persistent Lagrangian transport patterns in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. J. Phys. Oceanogr., 49, 353–367, https://doi.org/10.1175/JPO-D-17-0207.1
