Preparation of ocean model forcing parameters from FNWC atmospheric analysis and model predictions
Gallacher, Patrick Charles

A software system is described which produces atmospheric fields on the time scale necessary to force the Garwood (1977) mixed layer model. The fields required are the surface wind speed, solar radiation and total heat flux. These fields are obtained from the NORPAX data center and from FNWC. The winds are available at 6 hour intervals and the heat fluxes at 12 hour intervals. The software system edits, reformats and interpolates the fields to 1 hour intervals. The system also provides the capability to extract specific grid points for any time interval desired. (Author)
