The NRL Ocean Prediction System is part of a coordinated effort to develop efficient and effective ocean nowcast/forecast systems that are eddy-resolving (at least 1/8). This task involves development and validation of basin and global scale thermodynamic ocean circulation models that can run on existing and planned operational computers and realistically depict fronts and eddies and upper-ocean thermal structure.
