Abstract:

This Users Manual describes the sequence of scripts for the Global Ocean Forecast System GOFS Version 3.0 that consists of the 112 degree global HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model HYCOM and uses the Navy Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation scheme that is run daily in the normal processing stream at the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO. It is geared toward NAVOCEANO operators rather than a scientific researcher using HYCOM. The appendices contain the individual scripts used in the daily runstream and a troubleshooting guide is included to provide workarounds to some common problems encountered when running the model.
