Abstract:

Our long-term technical goal is to produce a tested tangent linear and adjoint model for ROMS Regional Ocean Modeling System that is suitable for general use by ROMS modelers. This is complementary to the Kalman Filter, ESSE, and Greens 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 ROMS primitive equation modelingassimilation.
