Montage of Applications


The MITgcm (MIT General Circulation Model) is a numerical model for studying the ocean and atmosphere. It is capable of simulating these fluids at a wide range of scales and can resolve many different processes. It has a non-hydrostatic capability (Marshall et al., JGR 1996a & b) and uses the finite volume method to accurately represent the bottom boundary position (Adcroft et al., MWR 1998).
