Ocean Models & HPC

To provide and maintain a basis for its program of numerical simulation and experimentation, Ocean Dynamics aims at developing and maintaining a flexible and efficient system of regional to global ocean models? for multi-decadal eddy-resolving simulations, with particular emphasis on including the effects of mesoscale ocean processes in critical regions such as the subpolar North Atlantic, the tropical Atlantic and Pacific, and key oceanic gateways such as the Agulhas regime south of Africa. These configurations provide the oceanic component for the Flexible Ocean Climate Infrastructure.
