* Realistic goal as set by team


Marine services key information gaps l.jpg

Marine ServicesKey Information Gaps

  • More Atmospheric and Oceanic Observations – Ocean, Coastal, Great Lakes (i.e. Large Data Voids)

  • More Accurate 3D Picture of Atmosphere – Ocean, Coastal, Great Lakes (No Observations in Vertical)

  • Improve Model Resolution and Physics

  • More Training/Decision Support Systems
