This page describes the compiling of the NOAA/GFLD MOM (modular ocean model) version 5.0.2 (MOM home) on PDC's Beskow system (beskow). Version 5 of MOM is an open source project released under the GPL license.

1. Ensure the correct intel compile module and wrappers are loaded using:

module swap PrgEnv-cray/5.2.82 PrgEnv-intel/5.2.82

2. Download source code to an appropriate folder (e.g. /home/${USER}/)

git clone; cd mom; git checkout 5.0.2

3. Copy the Beskow specific config files and to the bin folder

cp /cfs/nobackup/x/xhamst/Public/mom/ /home/${USER}/mom/bin
cp /cfs/nobackup/x/xhamst/Public/mom/ /home/${USER}/mom/bin

4. Run the compile script using the platform flag (example below is for the CM2M version of the model):

cd /home/${USER}/mom/exp
./MOM_compile.csh --platform --type CM2M

5. Go and have a coffee, the compile takes quite some time.

6. Check in the folder /home/${USER}/mom/exec. If the build is successful there should be a folder which contains a CM2M folder with your executable.
