Abstract:

We are developing an integrated rapid environmental assessment capability that will be used to feed an ocean nowcastforecast system. The goal is to develop a capacity for predicting the dynamics in inherent optical properties in coastal waters. This is being accomplished by developing an integrated observation system that is coupled to a data assimilative hydrodynamic bio-optical ecosystem model. The system will be used to develop hyperspectral remote sensing techniques for optically complex nearshore coastal waters in support of the development and validation of the Navy Earth Map Observer NEMO satellite system.
