HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM)
Entry ID: RSMAS_HYCOM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: HYCOM (Bleck, 2002) is the hybrid coordinate version of MICOM. While still primarily isopycnic in character, HYCOM allows coordinate surfaces to locally deviate from isopycnals wherever the latter either fold, outcrop, or generally provide inadequate vertical resolution.

The coordinate hybridization approach in HYCOM differs from other generalized coordinate schemes developed over the years in ... View entire text
