The steering tool has been added to facilitate the process of launching models multiple times. To launch the steering tool, choose the menu command Data | Steering Module.
In SMS version 12.0 and earlier the steering tool can also be used to facilitate the transfer of data from wave models to circulation models and back. Currently, CMS-Flow / CMS-Wave links is supported. In versions 12.1 and later, the CMS-Flow Model Control is used for steering.
NOTE: CMS-Flow (formerly known as M2D) and CMS-Wave (formerly known as WABED) are components of the Coastal Modeling System (CMS).
