Abstract : The Institute for Naval Oceanography (INO) sponsored Workshop on Data Assimilation in Coupled Air-Sea Nowcast/Forecast Systems was held February 27 and 28, 1992, to promote discussions and develop a strategy for research and development of data assimilation techniques in coupled atmospheric/ocean nowcast/forecast modeling systems for the Mediterranean Sea. The motivation for the workshop, in terms of INO's program, is the changing priority of Navy program sponsors to an emphasis in coastal and semi-enclosed seas research and development efforts. Within this area, the Mediterranean Sea has been specifically identified by the Navy as priority.
