Welcome to The Princeton Ocean Model (POM), a simple-to-run yet powerful ocean modeling code that is able to simulate a wide-range of problems: circulation and mixing processes in rivers, estuaries, shelf and slope, lakes, semi-enclosed seas and open and global ocean. POM is a sigma coordinate (terrain-following), free surface ocean model with embedded turbulence and wave sub-models, and wet-dry capability. POM has been and continues to be a pioneering force in ocean research and modeling due to the continued innovative improvements and new developments by its users. (see more on POM developers and history on Wikipedia).

International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO)
The 7th IWMO was held 1-5 June 2015 at Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia. (IWMO-2015 web site). To submit manuscripts to the IWMO special issue click here and information how to submit are here .

The 8th IWMO will be held at the University of Bologna, Italy, in early June, 2016 (more details later)

Peer reviewed papers from IWMO are published in special issues of Ocean Dynamics
