  • Ocean Modelling CORE-II Special Issue

Download Announcement

Ocean Modelling solicits manuscripts that document aspects of the CORE-II simulations. Manuscripts should compare simulations across a suite of models, as well as to observational analyses where available. The journal is particularly interested in manuscripts that thoroughly and pedagogically document the state-of-the-science in a particular aspect of global ocean-sea ice modelling available through the CORE-II protocol. Ocean Modelling will publish peer-review CORE-II papers in a virtual Special Issue, meaning that accepted papers will appear in the journal as per a normal submission, but will be stamped as part of the CORE-II Special Issue and will be linked online to other CORE-II papers. The deadline for acceptance into the CORE-II Special Issue is 31st December 2014.
