The Ocean Circulation and Climate Advanced Modeling Project (OCCAM) uses a primitive equation numerical model to develop several high resolution visualizations of the world's oceans, including the Arctic Ocean and marginal seas such as the Mediterranean. This site features a selection of animation sequences and Quicktime movies from the model at ¼, 1/8, and 1/12 degree resolutions. Data from the model may also be requested, and after being prepared off-line, users can collect the data via ftp. The site also includes model details and parameters, an explanation of data assimilation methods, and links to publications and related projects.
