Abstract:

A partnership of institutions academia and government is collaborating on inserting and validating barotropic and baroclinic tides in 112 deg and 125 deg numerical simulations of the global ocean. The collaboration is applying the results of the 112 deg and 125 deg simulations to a number of problems of scientific interest, described in further detail below. This partnership builds on the strong relationship that the lead PI of this proposal, Brian Arbic, has established since 2006 with Florida State University FSU and the Stennis Space Center branch of the Naval Research Laboratory NRL . NRL and FSU have a long-standing relationship, developed during the National Oceanographic Partnership Program NOPP-supported HYCOM HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model consortium effort, to develop and transition an eddy-resolving, real-time global and basin-scale ocean prediction system. These systems are being transitioned for operational use by the U.S. Navy at the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO, Stennis Space Center, MS. This project builds upon work begun with Naval Research Laboratory contract N000173-06-2-C003, and reported on in Arbic et al. 2010.
