Abstract: The primary purposes of this proposal are; a) finalize the incorporation of HYCOM into CCSM, b) assess the impact of the isopycnic versus depth coordinates, and c) use the coupled CCSM/HYCOM as a powerful research tool for climate studies. In all activities, Drs. Chassignet and Yin will interact and coordinate with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), CCSM and HYCOM communities which include the scientific users, the ocean and coupled climate model development teams and the project leaders.
