Abstract:

A comprehensive data set from the ocean and atmosphere was obtained just north of the Monterey Bay as part of the Monterey Bay 2006 MB06 field experiment. The wind stress, heat fluxes, and sea surface temperature were sampled by the Naval Postgraduate Schools TWIN OTTER research aircraft. In situ data were collected using ships, moorings, gliders and AUVs. Four data-assimilating numerical models were additionally run, including the Coupled OceanAtmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS model for the atmosphere and the Harvard Ocean Prediction System HOPS, the Regional Ocean Modeling System ROMS, and the Navy Coastal Ocean Model NCOM for the ocean.
