The various components of the SOCCOM Modeling Plan all interact and relate to one another (below). The SOCCOM float program informs several of the modeling projects and the modeling projects are helping with the planning, design and quality control of the float deployments and data.

The SOCCOM Modeling Plan (below) encompasses a broad cross section of the available ocean, climate and earth system models of differing resolutions. The SOCCOM wind experiments will be conducted in the GFDL-CM4 simulation that has a varying ocean resolution between 10-25km and an atmospheric resolution of 50km and is coupled to a fully prognostic ocean biogeochemical module.
