Parallel Ocean Program (POP) Model Output Data from the Earth System Grid (ESG)

Summary
Abstract: The CCSM3.0 POP is based upon POP Version 1.4.3, which was developed at Los
Alamos National Laboratory. Over the course of CCSM3 POP model development,
there have been many small changes to the original POP 1.4.3 code in order to
allow the code to conform to CCSM requirements. Also, some corrections have
been applied, diagnostics have been added, and more substantial modifications
have been made to the code to improve the model physics. Wherever possible, a
deliberate effort has been made to alter the base POP 1.4.3 code as little as
possible, mainly by adding new modules instead of integrating the additions
into the original POP code. However, many of the CCSM-related requirements
resulted in modifications to numerous existing POP modules.

The POP model output data can be downloaded from the Earth System Grid (ESG).
