I am developing the Hallberg Isopycnal Model (HIM). This model is so named because (1) my wife is in marketing, and (2) it entirely describes what this model is: it uses an isopycnal vertical coordinate, and R. Hallberg is entirely responsible for its existence. This model was initially based on the Arakawa and Hsu (Mon. Wea. Rev., 1990) isentropic coordinate atmospheric model, but it has been extensively modified for use as an ocean model. More details are available at the HIM web page. HIM is available by contacting Bob Hallberg at Robert.Hallberg@noaa.gov.
