The long-term technical goal is to develop and maintain a Regional Ocean Modeling System ROMS for high-resolution scientific and operational applications. Our aim is to produce an open-source, terrain-following, ocean community model for regional nowcasting and forecasting that includes advanced data assimilation, ensemble prediction, and analysis tools for adaptive sampling and circulation dynamicsstabilitysensitivity, which is highly relevant to ONR objectives. This project will improve the ocean modeling capabilities of the U.S. Navy for relocatable, coastal, coupled atmosphere-ocean forecasting applications.
