Abstract: The Navy Layered Ocean Model (NLOM) is a nearly global (72S to 65N)
mesoscale ocean model. The model has 6 layers in the vertical with
~1/16 degree resolution in the horizontal, and covers regions of the
ocean deeper than 200m. The model is forced by NOGAPS atmospheric
forcing. The model also assimilates sea-surface height from satellite
altimetry and MODAS sea-surface temperature. The model is
thermodynamic and includes a bulk mixed layer model. See Rhodes,
R.C. et al., 2002: Navy Real-Time Global Modeling Systems,
Oceanography 15, 29-43, for an overview and a list of references.
