Abstract:

An oceanographic expert system to describe the evolution of the Gulf Stream and its rings has been developed at NOARL. Our latest results show the expert system to be more than 60 percent accurate in ring location predictions. The structural composition of the implemented expert system consists of an OPS83 rule based shell and modules, using primarily C for algorithms. Past funding and time allocation decisions affected design and software construction, in turn significantly impacting the project. This paper describes some of the computer related problems encountered during our drive to obtain a production version for the oceanographic analyst.
