ABSTRACT
<p>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.</p>
