Technical Documents

Foundations and History

The following documents provide a description of the physical, mathematical, numerical, and computational foundations for the various versions of MOM. There is also a document that gives a detailed account of MOM history. They are provided here partly for their historical relevance, as well as for their pedagogical value.

Documentation Development

The documentation for MOM is just as important as the code itself. Where feasible, the source of all documentation is developed alongside the code within the main repository. This allows developers to keep it up to date as part of their regular work flow.

If you find something incomplete, incorrect or incomprehensible, please report this as an issue on the task tracker.
