Ocean model protocol document

A protocol has been developed for use by all ocean modellers involved in this project to make standard simulations of inter-annual to decadal variability.

This protocol stipulates
i) forcing with NCEP reanalysed atmospheric data (1948-2001),
ii) model code, and
iii) output routines.

The protocol document has been published on the NOCES project web site ( This protocol is also likely to be adopted by those taking on similar ocean simulations in the future. By doing so, modellers will be able to compare their new results to those obtained in this international comparison.
