Abstract:

Our long-term technical goal is to produce a tested tangent linear and adjoint model for ROMSTOMS Regional Ocean Modeling SystemTerrain-Following Ocean Modeling System that is suitable for general use by ROMSTOMS modelers. This is complementary to the Kalman Filter, ESSE, and Green s Functions techniques being developed in other contexts. Our long-term scientific goal is to model and predict the mesoscale circulation and the ecosystem response to physical forcing in the various regions of the world ocean through ROMSTOMS primitive equation modelingassimilation.
