Overview
This data set is an archive of model simulations produced by Drs. HeeSook Kang and Chris Mooers, RSMAS, University of Miami, using Princeton Ocean Model (POM). It was one of three cases used in Kang and Mooers (2005). This dataset was produced by the 5year simulations from 1993 to 1997 with ECMWF 6hourly fluxes, which were recalculated with MCSST. Details of forcing and model configuration can be found in Kang and Mooers (2005). More about model setting and preparation of forcing appears in Kang (2001). Model parameters and configuration were chosen based on a series of sensitive studies (Kang, 1997).

Archive was done twice a day (00 and 12). Simulation dates are recognized in filenames with seven digits; year(1),month(2),day(2),time(2), for example, ec_3012012_1 means data archive on noon, January 20, 1993.
