Arzeno-Soltero, Isabella B.; Giddings, Sarah N.; Pawlak, Geno; McClean, Julie L.; Wang, He; Rainville, Luc; Lee, Craig M. (2021). Daily POP Model Output over the Equatorial Indian Ocean. UC San Diego Library Digital Collections.


This collection includes a spatial subset (10ºS-3ºN, 45ºE-90ºE) of forced coupled ocean/sea ice simulations using CICE4 and the global Los Alamos National Laboratory Parallel Ocean Program Model 2 (POP), run in the Community Earth System Model (CESM) framework. The output includes daily temperature, density, velocity, and wind stress from 2005-2009, at 42 depth levels, with a vertical resolution that varies from 10 m at the surface to 250 m at depth, and a nominal horizontal resolution of 0.1º. For more information on the setup, processing, and analysis, please refer to Arzeno-Soltero et al. 2021 (DOI to be determined later).

Support for the field study and for Arzeno-Soltero, Giddings and Pawlak was provided by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the NASCar DRI (Terri Paluszkiewicz and Scott Harper), awards N00014-15-1-2319 to Giddings and N00014-15-1-2303 to Pawlak. McClean and Wang were supported by ONR grant N00014-15-1-2189 to McClean. Julie McClean was also supported by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grants SC0012778 and SC0020073. Funding for the POP/CICE simulation was provided by a DOE BER grant entitled “Ultra High Resolution Global Climate Simulation” via a Los Alamos National Laboratory subcontract (to McClean); Caroline Papadopoulos (SIO/UCSD) and Elena Yuleava (UCSD) carried out the POP/CICE simulation. The POP simulation used Yellowstone (ark:/85065/d7wd3xhc) computational resources provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)'s Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL), sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
