Arctic Model Intercomparison MITgcm - NAOSIM
The intercomparison O.A.Sys performs is based on two model experiments which are following the protocol of the 'Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project AOMIP'. See also the AOMIP page of O.A.Sys.
Both model are set up in an Arctic/North Atlantic configuration. The focus of the intercomparison is on the heat and freshwatertransport, hydrography of the Arctic and sea ice.
The work is a contribution to the project 'The North Atlantic as a Part of the Earth System: From System Comprehension to Analysis of Regional Impacts', funded by the German Ministry for Research and Education (BMBF).
