Abstract:

The long-term goal of this and companion projects is to improve our ability to analyze and predict the upper oceanlower atmosphere environment, using sophisticated techniques that can exploit data from all available sources. This ability is fundamental to meeting DOD s needs for real-time analysis and improved airsea simulation and prediction on a variety of scales, including mesoscale to tactical scale support in littoral environments and on the battlefield. To meet these needs, the Naval Research Laboratory is developing the Coupled OceanAtmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS, and has already transitioned the atmospheric prediction system and ocean analysis components to operations.
