Abstract:

The Coupled OceanAtmosphere 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 users manual includes instructions to 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 namelists, setup of COAMPS, NCOM, and SWAN inputoutput directories and namelists, input data acquisition, creation of high-resolution grid setup namelists, and execution of COAMPS Version 5.0.
