Abstract:

Our goal is to provide a thorough evaluation of atmospheric forcing fields to be used in the development and operational implementation of the planned upgrade of the Polar Ice Prediction System PIPS. Our research will provide information on the temporal and spatial distribution of errors in the Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System NOGAPS atmospheric forcing fields for the PIPS domain an assessment of the impact of these errors on the PIPS forecasts and suggest ways to improve forcing fields or mitigate their impact on PIPS forecasts.
