Abstract : The Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS) Version 5.0 is a fully coupled, data assimilative model which consists of the atmospheric model (COAMPS), coupled to the Navy Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM), and the Simulating Waves Nearshore (SWAN) model. Coupling of the models is accomplished via the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF), in which surface fluxes of momentum and moisture, sea surface heights, currents, Stokes' drift currents, and wave radiation stress gradients are exchanged across the air-sea-wave interface. This version of the user's manual includes instructions to setup COAMPS Version 5.0 on a user's workstation or on the High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (DSRC) platforms. Step-by-step instructions include using subversion control to upload COAMPS Version 5.0 code and namelists, setup of COAMPS, NCOM, and SWAN input/output directories and namelists, input data acquisition, creation of high-resolution grid setup namelists, and execution of COAMPS Version 5.0.
