Ocean Forecasting Research

Developing forecasts of ocean dynamics, waves and ecosystems.

The group develops operational short-range forecast configurations of community models driven by atmospheric forcing from the Met Office Unified Model, and where appropriate using marine data assimilation. Applied research supports users of the models and develops decision tools for marine operations based on model outputs.

The research effort is reinforced by a close collaboration with academic groups in the National Centre for Ocean Forecasting.
