MetUM-GOML

This page describes MetUM-GOML coupled model, which comprises the MetUM Global Atmosphere (GA) and Global Land (GL) coupled to the MC-KPP ocean mixed-layer model. Currently, MetUM-GOML works with GA scientific configurations GA1, GA2 and GA3. We recommend that you use MetUM-GOML with GA3, unless you have a very good reason otherwise. MetUM GA3, GL3 and MC-KPP version 1 define the MetUM-GOML1 coupled configuration.

MetUM-GOML version GA configuration GL configuration MC-KPP version Status
MetUM-GOML1 3.0 3.0 1.0 Released
MetUM-GOML2 6.0 6.0 1.1 Released

Documentation

Documentation for MetUM-GOML is available, including a guide to setting up and running simple simulations on the ARCHER supercomputer. The MetUM-GOML documentation also links to various MC-KPP documentation pages, to provide a guide to namelist options, ancillary files and output diagnostics from the MC-KPP ocean model. Please read through this documentation carefully before using MetUM-GOML.

Simulations and data

We have put together a list of MetUM-GOML simulations performed so far, from which data are available for analysis. If you are interested in analysing any of these simulations, please contact Nick Klingaman. The simulation list is also useful for those running new simulations, as you may be able to copy and modify one of the existing simulations to suit your purposes, which will save you a considerable amount of time!

Authorship, citation and acknowledgement policy

If you use MetUM-GOML for a project, or include it in a proposal, we require that you abide by the following policies. The citation for Hirons et al. (2015), referenced below, that describes the MetUM-GOML model is:

Hirons LC, Klingaman NP and Woolnough SJ, 2015: MetUM-GOML1: A near-globally coupled atmosphere--ocean-mixed-layer model. Geosci. Model Dev., 8, 363-379, 2015. DOI: 10.5194/gmd-8-363-2015.

For proposals

Please contact Nick Klingaman to discuss using MetUM-GOML in a research proposal. Contacting Nick as soon as possible ensures that he can provide timely advice on experiment design, supercomputing costs, disk space and whether any modifications to the MetUM-GOML model would be required to conduct your experiments.

In your proposal, we require that on first use of the MetUM-GOML name, you refer to the model as:

"the ocean mixed-layer coupled configuration of the Met Office Unified Model (MetUM-GOML; Hirons et al., 2015), comprising the MetUM Global Atmosphere and the Multi-Column K Profile Parameterisation ocean, which was assembled and is supported by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science."

For publications

  • Where Nick or Linda has provided assistance with experiment design, setup or analysis, you should include Nick or Linda as a minor author on your publications that result from those experiments. If you have taken MetUM-GOML "off the shelf" and used it without much input from us, then co-authorship is at your discretion. If this policy will create difficulties for you, please discuss this with us before you start your experiments.
  • In your publications, we require that on first use of the MetUM-GOML name, you refer to the model as:

"the ocean mixed-layer coupled configuration of the Met Office Unified Model (MetUM-GOML[V]; Hirons et al. 2015), comprising the MetUM Global Atmosphere [X.x] ([MetUM citation]) coupled to the Multi-Column K Profile Parameterisation ocean (MC-KPP, version [Y.y])."

where [V] is the MetUM-GOML version you have used, [X.x] is the MetUM GA version you have used, [MetUM citation] is the MetUM description paper for GA [X.x] and [Y.y] is the MC-KPP version you have used. Contact us if you are unsure about any of these version numbers or references.

  • In the acknowledgements section of your publications, we require that you add:

"Assembly of MetUM-GOML and development of MC-KPP was supported by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science and led by Dr. Nicholas Klingaman."
