Abstract:

The long-term goal is to demonstrate the significance and importance of high-resolution 10 km atmospheric wind and surface stress fields produced by an atmospheric mesoscale data assimilation system to the numerical prediction of ocean waves by an appropriate wave model. The main objectives of this project are to 1. Build the infrastructure to generate the appropriate high-resolution atmospheric fields. 2. Perform long-term 1 year atmospheric reanalyses and forecasts for specific littoral areas of interest to wave modeling.
