Abstract:

BioCast is a software package designed to forecast the surface bio-optical components of the ocean. This software is a single component of the Tactical Oceanographic Data System TODS delivered to the Naval Oceanographic Office. BioCast is an automated system for producing forecasts of oceanic bio-optical properties. It produces hourly forecasts up to n hours by coupling Automated Optical Processing System AOPS produced bio-optical products with Navy Coastal Ocean Model NCOM ocean current products to predict how the current models will affect the future optical environment. The system is designed to be easily configured and to run in an automated fashion. This document describes the theoretical background of the forecasting technique as well as the configuration and operation of the system.
