Marine ServicesVision / Benefits

Vision

Forecast Accuracy for Winds and Waves of 75% at 10 Days

  • Reduce Storm-Related Mariner Losses by 25%
  • Expected Savings of $700M/Year (Heinz Center Report)
  • Expected Savings $30M/Year – Gulf of Maine Study (2002)

Marine ServicesGoals/Targets to FY 12

* Realistic goal as set by team

marine services key information gaps
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
