****Please note that as of July 31st 2008, the CIMT website will no longer be updated. The Center for Integrated Marine Technologies (CIMT) has been non- a non-operational program since 8-1-2007 and as of 7-31-2008 the program will be ending. We hope that you will find this static page a useful reference of the many ocean observing activities that have occurred over the past six years.

Ocean Wind Product
  • Data Types:
  • Description: As part of the Center for Integrated Marine Technologies pilot ocean observing system project, NPS and JPL have developed an online near real-time surface wind demonstration product for Monterey Bay.  This product, aimed at the marine recreational user, shows surface winds from the Naval Research Laboratory-Monterey COAMPS® mesoscale atmospheric model together with winds measured at four ocean buoys and seven coastal stations from various CeNCOOS partner institutions. The model and measured wind vectors overlain on model wind speed contours is updated hourly, and an animation shows the surface winds during the past 48 hours and the forecast winds for the upcoming 24 hours.  The most recent observed wind speed and direction, along with station name and location, pops up in a text box when the user mouses over the station location on the graphic.  Time series plots comparing modeled with observed wind speed and direction for the past 48 hours, as well as forecast winds for the upcoming 48 hours are pulled up by clicking on any of measurement sites.  The time series data are also presented as text listings.  The same information, minus the measured winds, is also available for a subset of other model grid points.  Background information about the observations, model, and the local meteorology for this area are also provided.
