MASNUM : Data Information


MASNUM (Laboratory of MArine Sciences and NUmerical Modeling, State Oceanic Administration (SOA)) is a centre for the forecast system of wave-tide-circulation coupled numerical model. The circulation part is adapted from POM (Princeton Ocean Model), the wave part is MASNUM-WAM model, the meteorological models are MM5 for regional and NCEP for the global. The wave-induced viscosity Bv is added to the viscosity provided by the M-Y scheme in POM. A nested scheme from the quasi-global to Southeast Asian water is used to obtain the open boundary conditions. The detail data information as below :
