Atlantic Margin Model 1/60 (AMM60)



The AMM60 configuration is based on the Atlantic Margin Model 7km (AMM7) domain, which spans the region from 340oW-40oN to 13oE- 65oN. The NEMO tripolar grid is rotated such that the equator passes through the domain. This operation results in grid with a resolution of 1.8 km in both pseudo north and east directions.
