Abstract:

We are developing an interdisciplinary real-time coastal ocean observing network to provide users with continuous information on coastal ocean conditions. A number of applications for this network are being pursued. Resource managers and the weather service are using the routinely observed data to better predict and manage the use of the South Atlantic Bight SAB coastal waters. Academic researchers are using the network for targeted research and as a test bed for sensor development. The network will also serve as the nucleus of an observing system that will provide in-situ observations for a nowcastforecast regional coupled oceanatmosphere model of the SAB.
