OS08: Advances in the Prediction Capabilities of Interdisciplinary Nested Models in Coastal and Shelf Seas

Abstract submission deadline: 10 September, 2008 (Sponsor: Ocean Sciences)

Description: Numerical modeling and prediction in coastal and shelf seas has greatly benefited from the development of state-of-the-art, data assimilative and data validated large scale models that can supply initial and boundary conditions to nested domains, allowing the resolution of several spatial and temporal scales. The Global Data Assimilative Experiment (GODAE), to end this year, is one of the efforts that lead to the development of operational global and basin scale models that can provide boundary conditions to coastal and shelf models. Presentations affiliated with the GODAE Coastal and Shelf Seas Working Group are strongly encouraged, although all contributions addressing any of the following topics will be welcome. This session will provide a forum for recent advances in the numerical modeling of processes in coastal and shelf seas and the development and assessment of methods that lead to coastal prediction and forecast. Emphasis will be given to nested hydrodynamic models that employ (a) boundary conditions from large scale operational products to address coastal to offshore interactions; (b) data from observational networks for assimilation and validation. Nested ecosystem models of various complexities addressing the influence of physical processes on ecosystem dynamics and interdisciplinary coastal predictions are also welcome. The session will promote the discussion of methodologies that lead to reliable coastal forecasts (such as data assimilation, error analysis, influence of nesting, resolution and forcing) and the impact of sustainable, integrated modeling and observational networks that connect local, regional and global scales. Presentations that address the related socioeconomic and coastal management benefits are encouraged.
