Abstract:

Our long term fundamental goals are 1 to develop a movable multiply nested mesh ocean model and investigate its application for air-sea interaction studies on the mesoscale, 2 to study coupled air-sea processes at very high wind speeds, 3 to investigate the capability of coupled tropical cyclone - ocean models for improving predictions of the ocean response and tropical cyclone evolution, and 4 to develop model initialization and data assimilation techniques for short and medium range coupled air-sea predictions.
