Abstract:

Our long-term objective is to contribute to the development of the components of limited area, open-boundary, coastal nowcastforecast systems which will resolve the time and length scales of the relevant ocean dynamics in shallow coastal environments. Boundary conditions for these coastal nowcastforecast systems will be provided by large scale ocean models. For this reason, the overall objective of this research is to improve the data assimilation component in the Navys global and large scale basin ocean prediction system.
