Abstract:

The long term goal is to construct, verify and demonstrate an efficient system for the realistic, accurate and efficient estimation of oceanic fields which can be deployed rapidly in any region of the world ocean the coastal and shelf ocean, across the shelfbreak and the open ocean. The objectives of this research are i to continue the development of a relocatable, portable and efficient ocean prediction system for realtime forecasting and interdisciplinary research ii to demonstrate and validate HOPS in realtime exercises at sea and on land iii to implement regional forecast system methodologies and, iv to share software with the modeling and operational community.
