Abstract:

The US Navy maintains a capability for regional and coastal ocean modeling as part of a comprehensive effort to predict the impact of the environment air, water, land, and ice on naval operations, training, and support activities. The current operational regional ocean modeling capability is based on the Naval Research Laboratorys RELOcatable ocean nowcastforecast RELO system, and this system has formed the basis for further development in advanced data assimilation, ensemble prediction, and coupled modeling. This article presents an overview of the RELO system and its operational application.
