Abstract:

The long-term goal is the development of a consortium for hybrid-coordinate data assimilative ocean modeling, which will be ready in 2003 to address both the US-GODAE Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment principal objective, i.e., the depiction of the three-dimensional ocean state at fine resolution in near-real time, and the climate modeling objective of producing an unbiased estimate of the state of the ocean at coarse resolution for long-term climate variability research. The primary objective is the establishment of a global real-time ocean forecast system based on a hybrid-coordinate ocean model with sophisticated data assimilation techniques that can be efficiently executed on massively parallel computers.
