Develop a coupled ocean-atmosphere prediction system that can be used for hindcasting and forecasting coastal environments. This system is referred to as the Coupled OceanAtmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS. The atmospheric component of this system was developed by the Atmospheric Dynamics and Prediction Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory NRL and is currently in use at NRL and at the Navys Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center FNMOC Hodur, 1997. The objectives of this project are to develop an ocean model that contains some of the best features of existing coastal ocean models and meets the Navys needs for conducting simulations and predictions in littoral environments, and to fully couple that model with the atmospheric model within the current COAMPS program architecture.
