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.
