• U.S. Navy Hindcast Spectral Ocean Wave Model Atlases, volume 1, North Atlantic (NAVAIR C), volume 2, Pacific (NAVAIR C). These atlases represent ocean wave data by tables, bar. The Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System (NOGAPS) provides numerical guidance and products in support of a wide range of Navy oceanographic and atmospheric requirements. The forecast model component of NOGAPS is the heart of the system and represents a multiyear development effort by the scientists of the Naval Oceanographic. U.S. NAVY MARINE CLIMATIC ATLAS OF THE WORLD. VOLUME 1. NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN (REVISED ) The eight volume series of the U. S. Navy Marine Climatic Atlas of the World has had wide acceptance as an authoritative reference for large scale operational planning and applied research. This volume, based on nearly 20 years of additional data, is an Cited by: 6. Each model run produces a collection of files containing gridded fields comprised of input and mean wave parameters such as the significant wave height, directions, frequencies etc. Once per month, a wave simulation is carried out using restart files from the previous month and forced by hindcast wind products for the entire month.

  In May , the Chief of U.S. Naval Operations formed the Navy’s Task Force Climate Change (TFCC) to take a hard look at what climate change means for naval operations. Some of the fastest-changing parts of the world include the poles — the Arctic and Antarctic — which are warming at an unprecedented rate. The primary data source is the hindcast data base developed by the U.S. Navy. (References 1 and 2) Briefly, archiv-.d wind data are used by Fleet Numerical ¾.

Table TCH namelist parameter for observation-based source terms. Coefficients (a 1, a 2, p 1, p 2) and generic spectral density (F) are for the wave breaking, and whitecapping dissipation st parameter a 0 controls the flux of energy from the wave to the atmosphere in the case of opposing winds (or winds at large angles) in the parameterization of the by: U.S. NAVY MARINE CLIMATIC ATLAS OF THE WORLD (Ver August ) MEDITERRANEAN The first section provides a seasonal overview of weather hazards to navigation along the major shipping routes in the Mediterranean Sea.

Uncoupled discrete spectral models of this type include the Global Spectral Ocean Wave Model (GSOWM) adapted by the Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center of the U.S. Navy (Clancy e t al., ) from an earlier Northern Hemisphere Model developed by Pierson and colleagues (Pierson, ).Cited by: 2. This case study was undertaken by David Wang and Erick Rogers from the Navy Research Laboratory Oceanography Division, US Navy. Background This study was undertaken to evaluate the global hindcasting of the WAVEWATCH III model which is intended to mimic the real-time experimental' system running at the US Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO). The U.S. Navy maintains a large fleet of ocean gliders for environmental measurement. Ocean gliders are slow-moving, long-endurance, underwater vehicles that gather data as they travel through the ocean’s interior using high-efficiency buoyancy engines. (U.S. Naval Research Laboratory).   Generally, original routes for transoceanic passages, issued by the U.S. Navy’s ship routing service, are equatorward of the 10% frequency isoline for gale force winds for the month of transit, as interpreted from the U.S. Navy’s Marine Climatic Atlas of the World. These are shown in Figure a and Figure b for the Pacific.

The Spectral Ocean Wave Model (SOWM) is a deep water model that produces estimates of wave conditions from a wind field.

The SOWM used at the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Oceanographic Center (FNOC) generates an array of wave freqencies versus energies for each model grid point from ship observations.

Elkhorn Slough is a shallow, tidally forced estuary that is directly connected to Monterey Bay. It is ebb-dominated and, due to continued erosion, the tidal prism has tripled over the past 40 years.

Water level measurements at four locations are used to examine tidal and nontidal oscillations in Elkhorn by: Spectral wav e climate of the North Sea.

Introduction. During the last decades, the wave climate data are mainly treated as the long-term statistics of significant wave heights H s, mean (or peak) periods T and main directions θ at selected points or in certain regions of the Ocean.

The techniques for the assessment of wave induced loads for the design of ships and offshore structures require not only estimates of (H s, T, θ Cited by:   U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office, Washington, DC Google Scholar Thompson EF, Vincent CL () Significant wave height for shallow water design.

Definition. Wave hindcasts refer to the predictions of wind waves on the water surface for a past event. Wave nowcasts and forecasts similarly refer to the predictions in real time and in the future, respectively. But the relations or models used for predictions for a past, present, or future event are the same.
