Abstract:

An eddy-resolving nowcastforecast system for the North Pacific basin using the 116 degree Pacific basin NRL Layered Ocean Model NLOM. This system will include assimilation of satellite altimetry into the eddy-resolving NLOM which will provide the accurate sea surface height fields to produce 3-D volumes of temperature, salinity, and sound speed using the synthetic data bases of MODAS 2.0.
