Welcome to POM, The Princeton Ocean Model
directory. POM is a sigma coordinate, free surface, primitive equation
ocean model, which includes a turbulence sub-model. It was developed
in the late 1970's by Blumberg and Mellor, with subsequent contributions
from other people (see history). The model has
been used for modeling of estuaries, coastal regions and open oceans.
