3. Getting started with MITgcm

In this section, we describe how to use the model. In the first section, we provide enough information to help you get started with the model. We believe the best way to familiarize yourself with the model is to run the case study examples provided with the base version. Information on how to obtain, compile, and run the code is found there as well as a brief description of the model structure directory and the case study examples. The latter and the code structure are described more fully in chapters 2 and 4, respectively. Here, in this section, we provide information on how to customize the code when you are ready to try implementing the configuration you have in mind.
