Actively manage these interfaces, through community modeling partnerships

operational defined
“Operational” defined
  • Requirements-driven;
    • Meets a well defined mission need
  • Timely and Reliable;
    • Runs regularly & automatically in real time (24x7)
  • Demonstrates improvement; decreased uncertainty
  • Can fit well in the operational framework
    • Standardized formats, methodologies
  • Integrated QC (integrity guaranteed)
  • Stability & commitment for the model life-cycle
the community approach
The Community Approach
  • A community approach…
    • Allows for open discussion of strengths and weaknesses of different models
    • Elucidates the requirements of a common shared infrastructure
    • Allows model improvements to be shared effectively
    • Advances the science (R2O/ O2R)
    • Leverages resources and amplifies the voice of the community
goals and shared practices
Goals and Shared Practices
  • Define criteria for transition and actively use these guidelines in partnership activities
    • Includes methods, standards and criteria for evaluating modeling systems (skill scores, etc.)
    • Support transition through NOAA modeling involvement in key partnerships with academia, state and local governments, and industry.
    • Examples: ROMS; ADCIRC; HYCOM communities
  • Create environments for evaluation and prototyping; shared datasets
    • Working, high quality grids, forcing, observations, in a shared resource
    • Example: Grid catalog; Delaware Bay Model Evaluation Environment
goals and shared practices1
Goals and Shared Practices
  • Articulate “best” data management practices

Ex: Model outputs in standard formats for ingest into GIS for analysis, mapping, and visualization

  • Follow and develop community framework and infrastructure: Earth System Modeling Framework
    • Model coupling, numerics, gridding techniques, etc.
  • Systems Approach: Integrating streamflow, runoff, water levels, waves, currents, T, S, etc.

other ingredients for successful transition
Other ingredients for successful transition
  • Early involvements of Operations Center; agreed to operational or “applications” pathway
  • Clear plans and schedules; business case (ties back to customer value)
  • Clear funding for full life-cycle, including O+M
  • Routine check-in with key stakeholders – including management
  • Anticipate the unexpected

Salinity

NOS/NOAA Marine Modeling Requirements
  • Support of safe & efficient navigation
      • Water levels for under-keel clearance
      • Currents for right-of-way, maneuverability
      • Future-chart w/forecast water levels and real time
      • bathymetry
  • Inundation
    • Storm Surge
    • Sea Level Rise
      • Note also: Coastal flooding, tsunami
  • Emergency response
      • HAZMAT
      • Homeland Security
      • Search & Rescue
  • For environmentally sound management of the coastal zone
      • Ecosystem applications
      • Marine geospatial applications (CMSP)
      • Energy, Arctic
discussion points one perspective
Discussion Points (one perspective)
  • Already seeing benefits from improved communication and awareness of operational constructs.
  • Which sets of issues are we trying to improve on? Which part of the cycle?
  • Interdisciplinary is key; and its hard
coastal ocean modeling framework consists of middleware to manage workflow

PURPOSE:

  • Simplify Data Handling & Maintenance
  • Provide a Single System for all Locations
  • Provide a Single Source Graphics and Web Pages
  • Share Skill Assessment and Evaluation Tools
  • Provide a Single NOS Model Image to Users (NetCDF)
  • Various Models considered
    • ADCIRC, ECOM, EFDC, ELCIRC, FVCOM, MECCA, POM, QUODDY, ROMS
    • NOS has selected ROMS and FVCOM as the basis for new OFSsto select two or three “corporate” models
