The long-term goal is to develop and evaluate a nowcastforecast system for coastalopen ocean regions with the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model HYCOM. Objectives are a To evaluate the models performance in reproducing the oceanic circulation, with a special focus on the coastal regions b To evaluate the models forecast skills and usefulness in providing boundary conditions for ultra fine-mesh coastal models c To refine the hybrid coordinate design of the ocean model, especially in shallow coastal regions.
