3.2 Obtaining the code

MITgcm can be downloaded from our system by following the instructions below. As a courtesy we ask that you send e-mail to us at mitgcm-support@mitgcm.org MITgcm-support@mitgcm.org to enable us to keep track of who's using the model and in what application. You can download the model two ways:

  1. Using CVS software. CVS is a freely available source code management tool. To use CVS you need to have the software installed. Many systems come with CVS pre-installed, otherwise good places to look for the software for a particular platform are cvshome.org and wincvs.org .

  2. Using a tar file. This method is simple and does not require any special software. However, this method does not provide easy support for maintenance updates.
