Ocean Observing Forecast Fields

Oregon Coastal Ocean Simulator

Experimental nowcast and forecast sea surface temperature and sea surface current fields are available HERE. Nowcast and forecast surface salinity and ocean current fields are available HERE.

Nowcast and forecast sea surface temperature and sea surface current fields, which are designed to hightlight water temperatures that tuna perfer, are available HERE.

These forecast fields are produced by a numerical coastal ocean circulation model maintained by the OSU/COAS research group led by Professor Alexandre Kurapov, with initial support by OrCOOS and ongoing support from NANOOS and the Cooperative Institute for Oceanographic Satellite Studies (CIOSS).

3-day forecasts of ocean currents, temperature, and other oceanic fields are updated daily at approximately 12:30 pm PDT. They are constrained by assimilation of recent data, including HF radar surface currents and sea surface temperature from the GOES satellite.
