Description 
Summary

Data sets generated by Prinston Ocean Model (POM). The POM model is one of the state-of-the-art ocean model, driven by the atmospheric NCEP/Eta model. On request, the POM model can be re-run for a particular domain within the Mediterranean and for specific time periods and horizontal resolutions, as agreed with the user. The resolution may range from 4-20 km. The model output can be provided in binary GRIB and/or ASCII formats.
