Modeling & Forecasting Activities

A key goal for CIMT Modeling and Forecasting is to utilize observational data sets to generate accurate predictive models to forecast change in the physical and biological components of the greater Monterey Bay ecosystem. Because the modeling process requires input from all of the CIMT working groups, modeling products help to integrate the various components of CIMT.

The modeling group has identified three goals critical to CIMT's mission:

  • To provide a near real-time estimate of physical conditions of the greater Monterey Bay area for public inspection and utilization
  • To hindcast estimates of the physical state during cruise-specific periods for CIMT-related analyses
  • To explore through modeling and synthesis activities the direct and indirect connections between the physical forcing and ecosystem response.

Partial support for maintaing the M0 mooring was provided by CICORE in 2005. M0 provides real-time data stream to the Wind Model.
