Brief description

Output data from the Australian Community Ocean Model (AusCOM), based on the GFDL MOM4p0d and Los Alamos CICE 3.14 codes. The AusCOM is an initiative by the Australian climate sciences community (including government and academic research laboratories) towards a unified coupled ocean-seaice model for climate applications. Among the available variables there are: current velocities, salinity, temperature and density of sea water, heat and salinity fluxes, surface height. Ocean Only simulations: The model resolution is a nominal 1 degree in
the horizontal with latitudinal refinement to 1/3 degree in the tropics
and latitudinal refinement in the Southern Ocean (up to 60S) to
counteract the convergence of meridians. Initialised with the PHC
dataset (Steele et al 2001) and surface forcing is from the NCEP R2
dataset.

Data time period: 1979 to 31 12 1999
