OSU-NOPP is a multi-investigator coastal ocean circulation observation, modeling and assimilation project with industrial, academic, and government partners. gif format or pdf format.


The goal of the project is to develop nowcast and forecast systems for wind-driven coastal ocean flow fields. gif format or pdf format.


Extensive meteorological and hydrographic measurements were made. gif format or pdf format.


Several surface radar systems were utilized. gif format or pdf format.


Atmospheric modeling was used to estimate the spatial variability in the wind field. gif format or pdf format.


Atmospheric model results are being compared to measured wind stresses. gif format or pdf format.


Numerical modeling is a major component of the project. Model results will be compared to observed flow fields and hydrography. gif format or pdf format.


Data assimilation techniques are being utilized to optimize model performance. gif format or pdf format.
