Abstract:

The long-term goal is to contribute to validation and increased performance of the Navy air-sea-wave coupled forecasting models and air-sea interaction processes. On the basis of data collected during the DYNAMO project including SeaGlider, RV Revelle and RV Mirai flux data and CTDturbulence measurements contribute to better understanding of oceanic processes responsible for initiation and propagation of Madden Julian Oscillation MJO in the Indian Ocean, contribute to validation and increased performance of the Navy air-sea-wave coupled forecasting models, develop and validate a simplified Skin, Warm and Mixed Layer SWaM parameterization of the oceanic upper level. On the basis of the Sea Glider observations provide validation data against coupled COAMPS forecasts.
