Abstract : An explanation component has been developed for an existing oceanographic expert system that predicts the movement of mesoscale features associated with the Gulf Stream. The information provided by the expert system is used by image processing analysts when the oceanographic features cannot be observed by satellite data due to interference such as cloud cover. The addition of an explanation capability gives users a basis for judging the quality of the system's decision making process.
