Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to continue to provide support e.g., consultation, code updates, training, data transfer, etc. for those users of the Coupled OceanAtmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS 1 who obtain the system through the release of the code as determined by release guidelines. The active distribution of COAMPS to the general scientific community cannot be accomplished without support from NRL-Monterey. To fully realize the development potential of the COAMPS system, the Navy must leverage research being performed in the community at large. Through increased usage of COAMPS by the broader community, NRL has been able to leverage discoveries, leading to advances in COAMPS capabilities including microphysics, numerical methods, and coupled modeling. One of the primary objectives of this project is to develop and improve our comprehensive technical support capability for the COAMPS users, particularly those who have projects supported by ONR. Components in the support structure include, but are not limited to improvingupdating to the COAMPS web site, updating versions of the code as necessary, updating the COAMPS documentation, providing user feedback to COAMPS developers, providing users with tools to obtain NOGAPS data for COAMPS initial and boundary conditions, observations data both atmospheric and ocean for historical cases, and maintainingupdating all of the supporting databases.
