Towards a high-resolution global coupled Navy prediction system Conference Paper uri icon


  • The development of a fully coupled global atmosphere-ocean prediction system for short-term forecasting at the Naval Research Laboratory at Monterey (NRL-MRY), was described. The global coupled coupled Navy Operational Global Atmospheric System (NOGAPS) /Parallel Ocean Program (POP) system is being used to investigate seasonal forecasts of the atmosphere and ocean. By the use of Simple Ocean Data Assimilation Scheme (SODA), the model forecast from 0.4 global POP has been combined with an estimate of corrections based on a set of observations consisting of temperature and salinity from hydrography and satellite-derived SST. The inclusion of ice in the coupled system will provide a more realistic time-dependent bottom boundary layer to NOGAPS.
