Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the fundamental issues involved with data assimilation in the coastal ocean and to use this knowledge to develop optimal, nowcast and forecast systems. The immediate scientific objectives of this research project are to develop practical, but still nearly optimal, methods for the assimilation of surface current measurements from land-based radar systems in coastal circulation models and to apply these methods to measurements from the Oregon shelf.
