Special Issue "Ocean Forecasting Systems and Recent Model Developments"

#1 Post by jivica »

Dear Colleagues,

Numerical ocean models have proved to be useful, modern tools, used daily to analyse, predict and advance our knowledge of ocean dynamics. Novel techniques of solving model equations on high-resolution unstructured grids, or multiple nesting inside finite difference models, make them extremely useful not only in the open ocean but in coastal regions as well. Coupled together with atmosphere and ocean wave models or using rapid advances in control theory and data assimilation, they allow an even better picture of the ocean than ever before. In that sense, present ocean models are considered mature, and their usage is demonstrated to be valuable not only for re-analysis but also for forecasting the future of the ocean in near real-time. Our everyday economic, safety and social life strongly depends on such an approach.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish the most exciting research with respect to the above subjects, providing a rapid review and publishing, aiming to disseminate knowledge freely.

High-quality papers and novel techniques are encouraged for publication.
