Abstract This report contributes to the preliminary validation of the ORCA025 configuration of the DRAKKAR project ( Only experiments forced by a repeated seasonal cycle forcing are considered here. Most of the plots are for the global ocean but some emphasize the Southern Ocean. The model (ORCA025) is the 1/4 global configuarion of the DRAKKAR project. It uses the NEMO system: OPA9 coupled with the LIM sea ice model, The configuration is described in Barnier et al. (2006). The main experiment considered here, ORCA025-G42, is short: it lasts 10 years.
