0.1-degree Parallel Ocean Program (POP) output for Eastern Equatorial Indian Ocean and Western Indonesia

| DOI: 10.5065/D64Q7STB

This dataset includes regional subsets in the western Indonesian region of output from a run of the Parallel Ocean Program (POP) version 2, the ocean component of the Community Earth System Model (CESM). The model was run with nominal 0.1-degree horizontal resolution, and 62 vertical levels with 10 meter resolution above 160 meters and gradually increasing vertical spacing below this level. The run was forced with Coordinated Ocean-Ice Reference Experiments (CORE) Version 2 atmospheric reanalyses, derived from NCEP reanalysis and remote sensing products. The model integration was coupled to the Los Alamos Sea Ice Model (CICE) version 4 using Coupler 7 (CPL7) in the CESM framework. The data files encompass the geographic range 85-130 E longitude, 15S-5N latitude, with all depth levels included. 5-day averages of state variables, surface fluxes, and advective fluxes of temperature and salinity are archived for the years 1977-2009 (the first two years are considered a transition period from climatological forcing). The high resolution and multidecadal time span of the output make it ideal for studying mesoscale eddies, coastal waves, and topography-constrained ocean flows and their long-term variability.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
