Advances in Coastal Ocean Modeling, Prediction, and Ocean Observing System Evaluation IV Posters

Session ID#: 38019

Session Description:
Downscaling and extending predictability in coastal and shelf seas are two of the objectives of the GODAE OceanView (GOV) initiative through its Coastal Ocean and Shelf Seas Task Team (COSS-TT). Broad participation and international coordination of interdisciplinary coastal and shelf models nested in data assimilative large scale models, along with quantitative evaluation of ocean observing systems, are COSS-TT priorities. This session will provide a forum for multi-scale hydrodynamic modeling and integrated observational studies that aim toward scientific validation, prediction and operational applications of numerical models in coastal and shelf seas, leading to new understanding of multiscale nonlinear ocean processes. Applications of nested models, such as the influence of physical processes on ecosystem dynamics and interdisciplinary coastal simulations and predictions are also welcome. The session will promote the discussion of methodologies that lead to reliable coastal ocean forecasts and applications (such as data assimilation, probabilistic approaches, influence of nesting, currents-waves and atmosphere-ocean interactions), Observing System Simulation Experiments and the impact of sustainable, integrated modeling and observational networks that connect local, regional and global scales.
