Abstract:

The Coupled OceanAtmospheric Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS Version 5.0 is a fully coupled, data assimilative model which consists of both COAMPS Version 3 and the Navy Coastal Ocean Model NCOM Version 4. Coupling of the two models is accomplished via the Earth System Modeling Framework ESMF in which surface fluxes of momentum and moisture are exchanged across the air-sea interface. This version of the users manual 1.0 includes instructions to upload and setup COAMPS Version 5.0 on a users 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 name lists, setup of COAMPS and NCOM inputoutput directories and name lists input data acquisition, creation of high-resolution grid setup name lists using both COAMPS-OS On-Scene and RELO NCOM, and execution of COAMPS Version 5.0.
