First time in India, Hybrid Coordinate Model (HYCOM) is implemented on IBM Power 6 machine at INCOIS and configured for Indian Ocean basin with 0.25o x 0.25o spatial resolution. Three hourly Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System (NOGAPS) based buoyancy and momentum fluxes with 0.5o x 0.5o spatial resolution were used for forcing the model. In this report we present the comparison the model simulated Sea level anomalies, Sea surface temperatures, currents and vertical profiles of temperature with those available form observational platforms and satellite data on a daily to monthly scale for the period 2003 to 2010. We present a critical analysis of model simulated variables and available observations and present the pluses and minuses of the model performance. We also make few suggestions for possible improvements in simulation, in view of the statistical evaluation of model variables.
