The Bergen ocean model benchmark (BOMB) 1.0 is an Open MP benchmark based on the Bergen ocean model (BOM) pioneered and developed by Berntsen, Skogen and Espelid \cite{berntsen1996doa,berntsen1998ass}. In this note we briefly report on the work undertaken to implement the Open MP directives into the BOM code, and problems related to this task. We also show some results from running the BOM benchmark on a Cray Origin 2000.
