Forcing and Boundary
- The model has been run for one
- It was initialized with a horizontally
constant vertical profile of temperature and salinity based on
- The model was forced with FNMOC NOGAPS Surface
Wind Stress (12 hourly) and coupled to the Pacific West Coast
(PWC) model in terms of the barotropic mode SSH and
- For the baroclinic mode, information from the
PWC model has not been used yet. Alternatively, radiation
conditions for layer velocities and advectional boundary
conditions for T and S were used for the baroclinic mode (advected
T, S were from the same single profile).

File gm_vel_SST_56month_9_14.gif contains plots of
SST and surface velocity for 5th and 6th months (May and June) of
1995 (notation 9_14 is for temp. range). File
gm_vel_SST_89month_9_14.gif contains plots of SST and surface
velocity for 8th and 9th months (Aug. and Sept.) of 1995.
Results from this run have been used to expose the
effect of baroclinic open boundary conditions. The results from this
preliminary run with climatological T and S inflow conditions should
be contrasted to the current improved results using T and S inflow
from the regional PWC model.
