Abstract:

Our goal is the development of a nearshore nowcasting system that ingests nearshore data collected by an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle AUV, or similar craft, and provides a nowcast of the nearshore waveheights and current fields for a potential amphibious landing site. The system will be incorporated into a real-time distributed database framework for initial condition specification and archiving of results.
