Abstract:

This is a users guide for the numerical ocean model developed at Princeton University and presently in use at the Institute for Naval Oceanography. The basic model has been applied successfully to study such diverse regions as Chesapeake Bay Blumberg 1977, the South Atlantic Bight Blumberg and Mellor 1983, the Mid Atlantic Bight Blumberg and Kantha 1985, the Gulf of Mexico Blumberg and Mellor 1985, New York Harbor Oey et al 1985a, b,c, Delaware Bay Galperin and Mellor 1990a,b, and the western Atlantic including Gulf Stream Mellor and Ezer 1991. It can model regions from the size of bays and estuaries to basin scale North Atlantic domains. A good discussion of modeling bays and coastal oceans is given by Blumberg and Oey 1985.
