Title Understanding Predictability of the Ocean.
Publication Date Sep 2013
Media Count 9p
Personal Author B. Powell
Abstract The long-term scientific goals of this research project are: 1. To develop an understanding of how some observations affect ocean predictability. 2. To further develop the state-of-the-art ROMS 4D-Var by extending the observational types and applications. 3. To gain experience and develop ideas for the limitations to the predictability of oceanic processes. 4. To train a new generation of students in data assimilation and ROMS. 5. As a YIP award, to strengthen the early career and build the research path for myself as young faculty. The primary objectives of this project are: (i) explore the capabilities of a real-time ocean stateestimation and prediction system; (ii) to assess how particular observations may affect predictability; (iii) to compare these results with full ocean-state estimates generated from the EX acoustic experiment; and, (iv) provide means to build a research program for early career scientist.
