The following package is not yet compatible with Veros v1.x.x. The last compatible version is v0.2.3.

Veropt (Bayesian Optimisation for the Versatile Ocean Simulator) is a Python package that aims to make Bayesian Optimisation easy to approach, inspect and adjust. It was developed for Veros with the aim of providing a user-friendly optimisation tool to tune ocean simulations to real world data. Veropt can be used with any optimisation problem but has been developed for expensive optimisation problems with a small amount of evaluations (~100) and the default set-up will probably be most relevant in such a context.

For more information about the package and the methods implemented in it, take a look at veropt GitHub repository and Ida Stoustrup’s thesis.
