Earth System Prediction Capability
The various model
components that make up the Earth System Prediction Capability (ESPC): The NAVy Global Environmental Model (NAVGEM) for the atmosphere, the HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) for the ocean, the Community Ice CodE (CICE) for the cryosphere, and WAVEWATCH III® (WW3) for waves. The individual models exchange information with each other via a coupling layer using tools from the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) and the National Unified Operational Prediction Capability (NUOPC).
