The Princeton Ocean Model (POM), a Three-Dimensional, Primitive Equation, Numerical Ocean Model
Entry ID: POM-3D-Model

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Princeton Ocean Model (POM) is a sigma coordinate, free surface, primitive
equation ocean model, which includes a turbulence sub-model. It was developed
in the late 1970's by Blumberg and Mellor, with subsequent contributions from
other people. The model has been used for modeling of estuaries, coastal
regions and open oceans.


Support has been provided by ONR and NOAA grants.

Access Constraints To access pom.f and other files through Internet, type ftp ftp.gfdl.gov; when
prompted for your name, type anonymous; when prompted for a password, type your
iternet address; after receiving a guest login ok, type cd pub/glm. You may
list filenames with the ls command. You may download with the command get
filename. Type quit to terminate.

The current code as of February 1998 is called pom97.f. To run the code,
transfer pom97.f and comblk97.h to a directory, compile and run.
Use Constraints The present program code is written in standard FORTRAN 77. There are other
versions in existence, but we only support and maintain the single version.

Users will need to write their own code to set up their own problem dependent,
initial conditions and lateral and surface boundary conditions. We can,
however, supply simple subroutines ... View entire text
