Model Information
For more information about this model, go to www.ccpo.odu.edu
Spatial Resolution
The vertical spatial dimension is defined by the sigma coordinate on the terrain following vertical scale. Grid mesh is curvilinear or rectilinear.
Temporal Resolution
Short time steps are required for proper model convergence. Step size is dictated by spatial input parameters.
Outputs
Outputs include ocean flows, salinity and temperature.
