# North Atlantic regional model¶

class veros.setups.north_atlantic.NorthAtlanticSetup(override=None)[source]

Bases: VerosSetup

A regional model of the North Atlantic, inspired by Smith et al., 2000.

Forcing and initial conditions are taken from the FLAME PyOM2 setup. Bathymetry data from ETOPO1 (resolution of 1 arcmin).

Boundary forcings are implemented via sponge layers in the Greenland Sea, by the Strait of Gibraltar, and in the South Atlantic. This setup runs with arbitrary resolution; upon changing the number of grid cells, all forcing files will be interpolated to the new grid. Default resolution corresponds roughly to $$0.5 \times 0.25$$ degrees.
