HOPE is a global general circulation model of the ocean. It is based on the primitive equations and utilizes the usual assumptions (hydrostatic, Boussinesqu) for large scale models. Other features: Geopotential vertical coordinate Free surface Imbedded dynamic-thermodynamic sea ice model with viscous-plastic rheology and snow.
