Abstract:

Our long term goals are to improve the modeling and prediction capabilities of numerical ocean models and data assimilation systems in support of operational coastal and ocean forecasting. We wish to systematically evaluate the skill of basin-scale and coastal ocean models, in producing the observed climatologies and variabilities of the North Atlantic Ocean. We also wish to test data assimilation methodologies, in particular those involving satellite-derived surface data, in order to improve the skill of nowcasting and forecasting meso-scale features in the open ocean, in the Gulf Stream region and the coastal zone.
