The packages represent the final stage before running a dynamical model. Data is mapped onto the model domains, freeing the dynamical models from extraneous baggage.
This package takes gridded volume fields and prepares them for insertion into the HOPS PE model as either initialization & boundary condition data or as assimilation fields. Its specific tasks include
This package takes gridded surface flux fields (wind stress, net heat flux, evaporation - precipitation, and shortwave radiation) and interpolates them onto the model grid.
