Abstract:

This project is part of a new collaborative effort aimed at the long term goal of providing improved terrain-following ocean models for the U.S. Navy s operational purposes, as well as for the general use of the ocean modeling community. An expert Terrain-following Ocean Modeling System TOMS that includes the most advanced numerical algorithms, data assimilation, air-sea coupling, as well as supporting diagnostic and analysis tools will be built, evaluated and tested for this purpose. The development of new numerical algorithms, such as new pressure gradient schemes, may also have long-term impact on the sigma coordinate modeling community at large.
