Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. The long-term goal is to contribute to the development of a global ocean nowcasting capability with basin-wide forecasting skill that provides a description of the three dimensional ocean structure, the locations of mesoscale features such as eddies and ocean fronts, and environmental definition with an accuracy superior to climatology and persistence. OBJECTIVES. Provide an unbiased environment in which the nowcastforecast capabilities of numerical ocean models can be evaluated, keeping current with ongoing field experiments to assess the usefulness and possible impact of data, as it becomes available. Focus on data acquisition, quality control, analysis and processing. Each contributing part of the desired end data product will deliver to a common point USM for final assemblage, analysis, and distribution. Perform an unbiased comparison between Model output and Measured data as defined by a consensus reached in the DAMEE Information Exchange Meeting 4 for the Standard , High resolution and Data Assimilation experiments. Execute an information management component which provides an interactive forum and coordination point for all the participating groups.
