1 T239 or ~1/2 for atmospheric model boundary condition (on GODAE server)

2 Provide subsurface temperature

  • Real-time altimetry via NAVO Altimeter Data Fusion Center (ADFC)

  • NLOM: NRL Layered Ocean Model

  • GODAE: Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment

  • FNMOC operates a GODAE data server with data and products

    from a variety of sources, including real-time altimetry from the NAVO ADFC


U.S. Navy Future Operational Transitions Related to GODAE Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM)

Participants: FNMOC, NAVO, NRL, ONR, Univ, Contractors

1 High vertical resolution for mixed layer prediction. Assimilates SSH from NLOM.

Running in real-time, see http://www.ocean.nrlssc.navy.mil/global_ncom

2 Running in real-time, see http://www.ocean.nrlssc.navy.mil/global_nlom

3For coupled ocean-atmosphere prediction.

4 To give NAVO/Navy experience with HYCOM without official operational status;

to be replaced by global HYCOM including the 1/25 Black Sea HYCOM

5Under the National Ocean Partnership Program (NOPP), 1/12 Atlantic HYCOM

demo is already running in near real-time. Includes the Mediterranean Sea.

Consistency NAT Hycom and WFS ROMS Temperature field from May 11 – June 13

WFS ROMS SST and surface velocity is shown inside the dashed line and outside of this area is the NAT HYCOM model.

Warm water is detached from the Loop Current and transported northward as mesoscale eddies and filaments.

Comparison with Temperature field from May 11 – June 13in situ velocity

  • Velocity at station C15 (10m isobath).

  • Due to a better representation of the coast geometry, the WFS ROMS model provides better results than the NAT HYCOM. The OI Winds also improve the model accuracy.

UNC-SAB modeling system sequence that nests the regional-scale QUODDY implementation (middle) within the 1/12 deg operational HYCOM-GODAE model (left). The limited-area QUODDY implementation (right) includes the estuary and tidal inlets along the Georgia/South Carolina coast and extends to the shelf-break.
