Real-Time Ocean Modeling Systems
March/April 2002 (vol. 4 no. 2)
pp. 50-57

The world's first eddy-resolving global ocean nowcast/forecast system has been developed at the Naval Research Laboratory and is running in real-time at the Naval Oceanographic Office. It uses satellite observations and an ocean model running on a high-performance computing platform to enhance real-time knowledge of the marine environment in which naval submarines and ships must operate. This article describes the how this system operates and its computational requirements.
