Abstract:

The long-range goal of this project is to improve our ability to understand and predict environmental conditions in the coastal zone. The objectives of this project are to conduct and analyze mesoscale model simulations of the coastal atmosphere using the Naval Research Laboratory s Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System COAMPS, to provide model-based atmospheric forcing fields to coastal ocean modelers, and to investigate and quantify the coupled response of the coastal atmosphere and ocean.
