CCSM2.0 Parallel Ocean Program (POP)
What is CCSM2.0 POP?
The active ocean-model component of the Community Climate System Model (CCSM) is the CCSM2.0 Parallel Ocean Program (CCSM2.0 POP), which is based upon the Los Alamos National Laboratory's POP Version 1.4.3. It is supported on the high-resolution Greenland Pole grid (gx1v3), which is identical to that used by the Community Sea Ice Model (CSIM) ice model.
The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.
CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
