A finite-volume, incompressible Navier Stokes model for studies of the ocean on parallel computers
The numerical implementation of an ocean model based on the incompressible Navier Stokes equations which is designed for studies of the ocean circulation on horizontal scales less than the depth ofExpand

Hydrostatic, quasi‐hydrostatic, and nonhydrostatic ocean modeling
Ocean models based on consistent hydrostatic, quasi-hydrostatic, and nonhydrostatic equation sets are formulated and discussed. The quasi-hydrostatic and nonhydrostatic sets are more accurate thanExpand

Representation of Topography by Shaved Cells in a Height Coordinate Ocean Model
Height coordinate ocean models commonly represent topography as a ‘‘staircase’’ of discontinuous steps that are fitted to the model grid. Here the ramifications of an alternative approach are studiedExpand

Implementation of an Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model on the Expanded Spherical Cube
A hydrodynamical kernel that drives both an atmospheric and oceanic general circulation model is implemented in general orthogonal curvilinear coordinates using the finite-volume method on theExpand

Global ocean circulation during 1992-1997, estimated from ocean observations and a general circulation model
[1] A three-dimensional oceanic state is estimated for the period 1992–1997 as it results from combining large-scale ocean data sets with a general circulation model. At the cost of increasedExpand

A New Treatment of the Coriolis Terms in C-Grid Models at Both High and Low Resolutions
Numerical models of the ocean typically employ gridpoint techniques in which the dynamical variables defining the state of the ocean are held on a staggered grid. One common arrangement of theExpand

Impact of geothermal heating on the global ocean circulation
The response of a global circulation model to a uniform geothermal heat flux of 50 mW m 2 through the sea floor is examined. If the geothermal heat inputExpand

Spurious dianeutral mixing and the role of momentum closure
Abstract This paper examines spurious dianeutral transport within a suite of ocean models (GOLD, MIT gcm , MOM, and ROMS). We quantify such transport through a global diagnostic that computes theExpand

Parameterizing the fresh-water flux from land ice to ocean with interactive icebergs in a coupled climate model
Icebergs are an important part of the fresh-water cycle and, until now, have not been explicitly represented in Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) class coupled global circulationExpand
