Summary
Abstract: The Modular Ocean Model (MOM) is a numerical representation of the
ocean's hydrostatic primitive equations, and it is designed primarily
as a tool for studying the global ocean climate system. MOM4 is the
latest version of the GFDL ocean model whose origins date back to the
pioneering work of Kirk Bryan and Mike Cox in the 1960s-1980s. It is
developed and supported by researchers at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid
Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), with contributions also provided by
researchers worldwide.

Presently, MOM4 is undergoing its second phase of beta-testing
(MOM4-beta2). This is a fully open beta test, so anyone wishing to
obtain the code can do so. The purpose of this web page is to provide
general information about MOM4, and particular information for how to
download and run the code.

Access the MOM4-beta2 release Ocean Simulation through the NOAA
Operational Model Archive and Distribution System (NOMADS):
