It is recommended that MOM users and developers download the most recent code using the following command
git clone https://github.com/mom-ocean/MOM5.git
The complete distribution of MOM includes some large data files used for testing and examples. To save your bandwidth and keep source code checkouts fast, the data files are managed in a slightly different way to source code files.
The files can be downloaded manually into the

However, the preferred method is to download the necessary input data automatically when running a test case, for example:
./MOM_run --platform PLATFORM_ID --type MODEL_TYPE --experiment TEST_CASE --download_input_data
