The multi-level baroclinic shelf-seas model developed by the and used for multi-level ocean projections in UKCP09.
POLCOMS stands for Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory Coastal Ocean Modelling System. It comprises a sophisticated three-dimensional hydrodynamic model, with the ability to run in regions which include both the deep ocean and the continental shelf, together with linked sediment and ecosystem models.
In UKCP09, POLCOMS has been run using the Reduced grid to project changes in sub-surface marine variables around the UK coast.
