Pagination or Media Count:
The long-term goal of the project is to develop an advanced, integrated system of oceanographic, meteorological, and vessel surveillance sensors and littoral ocean forecasting models to allow for the real-time observation and nowcastforecast of ocean, weather, and environmental conditions throughout the Hudson-Raritan Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean shoreline of the State of New Jersey. The observation and modeling systems are linked in a unique fashion, whereby the model forecast systems are enhanced by data assimilation, and the observing systems are enhanced by model-directed observations and model-assisted data interpolation.
