Abstract:

The version 4 series of the Navy Coastal Ocean Model NCOM has been developed at the Naval Research Laboratory NRL and transitioned to the Navy Oceanographic Office. New capabilities include a general vertical coordinate GVC option in addition to the sigma-z coordinate vertical grid, Earth System Modeling Framework ESMF compliance, and several other compile time options that increase the flexibility of the model code. NRL has also begun maintaining NCOM in version control using a Subversion repository. This Users Manual documents the setup and execution of the NCOM version 4.0 series.
