CCSM/LANL Parallel Ocean Program (POP)
Entry ID: LANL-POP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: POP is an ocean circulation model derived from earlier models of Bryan, Cox,
Semtner and Chervin in which depth is used as the vertical coordinate. The
model solves the three-dimensional primitive equations for fluid motions on the
sphere under hydrostatic and Boussinesq approximations. Spatial derivatives are
computed using finite-difference discretizations which are ... View entire text
