The goal of this project is to improve the forecast performance of shallow-water and limited-area ocean forecast systems through improvement in ocean data analysis and assimilation techniques. The Shallow Water Analysis and Forecast System SWAFS is the operational ocean nowcastforecast system at the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO. The objective of this project is to improve the forecast skill of SWAFS by integrating into the NAVOCEANO system the ocean data assimilation component developed for the Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS. The ocean data quality control, analysis, and assimilation components of SWAFS will be upgraded.
