The Thermal Modeling and Analysis Project (TMAP) at PMEL carries out many numerical ocean modeling experiments to try to understand how atmospheric forcing causes the ocean to behave during ""normal"" and ""unusual"" conditions in the tropical Pacific. Some of the most unusual conditions occurred during 1982 and 1983, the period of the most intense El-Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) event in modern times. This period has been the focus of a number of special ocean model studies by TMAP, and the results of these studies have provided the basis for several publications.
