1 MOSLEF (MODE 2) SUMMER VELOCITY MOSLEF (MODE 3) SUMMER VELOCITY PROMES-MOSLEF: An atmosphere-ocean coupled regional model. Coupling and preliminary results over the Mediterranean basin MWB02 ABSTRACT Over the last year, in the frame of the Spanish project MERCATOP, the regional atmospheric climate model PROMES and the finite elements semi-Lagrangian ocean model MOSLEF have been integrated in a unique system named PROMES-MOSLEF. OASIS3 coupler has been used as grid interpolator, inter-model communicator and inter- language communicator to link these two models. Currently, the system can be run in four different modes: atmosphere mode, ocean mode with climatological atmospheric feeding, ocean mode with regional modelling atmospheric feeding, and atmosphere-ocean coupled mode. Following MedCordex specifications, the first simulations using the system PROMES-MOSLEF have been focussed in the Mediterranean basin and the ERA-Interim period. In this work preliminary results obtained by using the system are shown and a comparison of those simulations is also presented.

MOSLEF currently uses a Serial partition type Recent Improvements in the regional atmospheric model PROMES: ECMWF-based Radiation ECMWF-based Radiation ORCHIDEE land surface model ORCHIDEE land surface model Interactive phenology Dynamic vegetation River routing The system can be run in four different modes: 1.atmosphere 2.ocean with climatological atmospheric forcing 3.ocean with ARCM forcing, and 4.atmosphere-ocean full coupled MOSLEF (MODE 2) WINTER VELOCITY MOSLEF (MODE 3) WINTER VELOCITY PRELIMINARY RESULTS Several preliminary simulations have been run in order to test the proper working of the system. Here some results of two simulations of the ocean model MOSLEF in the mode 2 of the system (atmospheric forcing provided by climatology) and the mode 3 (atmospheric forcing provided by PROMES, but MOSLEF running offline) are shown In the pictures a correct performance of MOSLEF can be seen. Both in summer and winter the model results have a reasonably good approximation to the main characterictics of the Mediterranean Sea surface circulation (see Roussenov et al., 1997 and its references). Mode 2 and mode 3 of the system give lightly different results, mainly in the strength of some vortex. This is an expected result because of the larger variability of the ARCM atmospheric forcings.
