Abstract:

The long-term goal is to use the HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model HYCOM with tides, dynamic sea ice, and data assimilation in an eddy-resolving, fully global ocean prediction system with 125 horizontal resolution that will run in real time at the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO starting in FY13. The model will include shallow water and provide boundary conditions to finer resolution coastal models that may use HYCOM or a different model. The objective is to develop, evaluate, and investigate the dynamics of 125 global HYCOM HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model with tides coupled to CICE Los Alamos Community Ice CodE with atmospheric forcing only, with data assimilation via NCODA NRL Coupled Ocean Data Assimilation, and in forecast mode. Also to incorporate advances in dynamics and physics from the science community into the HYCOM established and maintained within the Navy.
