[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: POSUM (Parallel OSU Model) is an ocean circulation model. Vertically, it is
stack of layers of constant orthobaric density. The horizontal discretization
is a finite difference approximation to the primitive equations in spherical
polar coordinates. POSUM is a non-Boussinesq, free-surface model, employing a
stable time-stepping algorithm that uses operator splitting of the baroclinic
and ... View entire text
