GODAE OceanView fosters the development and improvement of operational ocean analysis and forecasting systems worldwide. The most important aspects of this work relates to scientific advances in ocean modeling and data assimilation. The particluar challenges for the future will be on high resolution physical modeling, downscaling, biogeochemical and ecosystem modelling, ocean/wave/atmosphere coupling, data assimilation and coupled data assimilation, error estimates, long-term reanalyses and use of new observations.
The current systems linked to GODAE OceanView range from basin-scale to global coverage and from low to eddy-resolving resolution. Most of the systems assimilate real-time observations and more than half of them provide daily short term forecast. Their products are available through web services. More detailed information on the systems model specifications, assimilation schems, set-up and web services can be found below.
The latest GOV System National reports providing more details about the GOV systems are also available for download.
