The formation of surfaces in a body of water in the ocean which are neutral in density is a well-established concept in Oceanography. The most accurate method of approximating this neutral surface was developed in 2009, with the resulting output being referred to as the Ω-surface. This talk aims to demonstrate a new method of cellular automaton (step-by-step updating of the surface with a very inaccurate initial guess), and to compare its accuracy with the already developed Ω-surface approximation.
