Now that you've presumably perused the first chapter describing all the great features of POP, you're understandably anxious to leap in and run some simulations yourself. The general procedure for unpacking and building a POP executable will be described here. Exceptions to this procedure for some architectures will be noted.
The information in the following subsections is specifically directed at users of LANL POP, although the information is of general interest to the CESM1 POP2 user. For complete information regarding the installation and building of CESM POP, see the CESM1 User's Guide.
