Abstract:

The Navy has a need for global environmental prediction from the top of the atmosphere to the floor of the ocean. Forecast time scales are 7-10 days for the atmosphere and 30-60 days for the ocean. A coupled atmosphere-ocean prediction system for data-assimilation and forecast provides the best hope for achieving these ambitious goals. NRL-Monterey will develop the system with large contributions from the rest of NRL and the meteorological and oceanographic research communities at large. The target system with have horizontal resolution of O14 degree in the atmosphere and O18 degree in the ocean.
