Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS):

ROMS is a primitive-equation model using a coastline- and terrain- following curvilinear coordinate. A detailed model description can be found at http://www.atmos.ucla.edu/cesr/ROMS_page.html. ROMS was designed to be a parallel code, which uses 2D partitioning of the model grid into subdomains that may be assigned to different processors. ROMS can be run on both shared-memory (OpenMP) and distributed memory (MPI) machines. An early version of the OpenMP ROMS code can be found at marine.rutgers.edu/po/. ROMS has been intended to be a multi-purpose, multi-disciplinary oceanic modeling tool. A basin-scale ROMS has been developed over the Pacific Ocean with a spatial resolution of 12.5 km. A number of regional configurations are also developed including Southern California Coastal Ocean, Central and Northern California Coastal Ocean, and Prince William Sound in Alaska.
