Success Stories

  • Variational Data Assimilation

    Comparison between 3D-VAR and 4D-VAR from year-long experiments in the Okinawa Trough.

    3D and 4D variational systems were tested and/or transitioned to improving Navy capabilities of forecasting Ocean environments. The work on coupling the assimilation systems between the ocean, waves, atmosphere, and acoustics made progress to further improve the forecast skill of the ocean environment. Read More...

  • Coupled Ocean/Wav/Air/Ice Prediction System

    Coupled air/ocean/wave prediction systems can improve Navy forecasting.

    Coupled air/ocean/wave prediction systems can improve Navy forecasting via ASW performance, tropical cyclone prediction, search and rescue, and mission planning. Relocatable COAMPS-CICE systems to provide high-resolution Arctic forecasting of ice thickness, drift, and concentration for navigation. Read More...
