Use of new in situ observations in operational ocean forecasting

Emerging ocean observing systems - ARGO floats, ferry boxes and long range HF radar - promise to significantly increase the amount of in situ data available in near-real-time. In addition, concentional ship and buoy observations are expected become increa singly available in NRT. The project will...

Ensemble forecasting and the ocean's mesoscale

Project summary: Despite the popularity of ensemble simulations for medium-range and long-range forecasts in meteorology, similar activities are rather sparse in the ocean modeling community. The abundance of mesoscale activity (such as eddies) off the Norwegian coast has been throughly document...

The energetics of oceanic eddies and mesoscale features off the southern tip of Norway: A numerical study,dr.gr.stip. Ingerid Fossum

Prosjektsammendrag: It is well known that the ocean area off the southern tip of Norway is an area where oceanic mesoscale features such as eddies, fronts, upwelling jets and filaments are in abundance. It is also well known that this area is a higly biological productive ar ea, and that this pro...

The impact of high-resolution atmospheric model forcing on operational coastal and shelf ocean models HAMFOM),Dr.gr.stip./utenl.stip.England

Prosjektsammendrag: Considered is how oceanic frontogenesis and cyclogenesis processes are affected by exploiting recent high-resolution atmosphere model results as driving forces. The study is motivated by the fact that the trend in numerical weather prediction (NWP) is toward application of atm...
