2 Introduction

The name CANDIE stands for the CANadian version of DIEcast. Both CANDIE and DieCAST are Z-level primitive equation ocean circulation models. The original version of CANDIE was developed on the C-grid by Sheng, Wright, Greatbatch, and Dietrich (1998). More recently, Dan Wright developed the A-grid version of CANDIE from the C-grid CANDIE.
