Modeling the Central and Northern California Coastal Ocean

A three-level nested ROMS centered around Monterey Bay (MB) is developed with a spatial resolution of 15 km, 5 km, and 1.5 km covering the U.S. West coast, central California coast, and Monterey Bay, respectively. The MB ROMS is forced with the real-time wind (Chao et al., Geophysical Research Letters, 30(1), 1013, 2003) and includes a ten-compartment ecosystem model developed by Chai and Chao et al. (Journal of Oceanography, 59, 461-475, 2003). It has the capability of assimilating both the historical and real-time data (in situ and remotely sensed) through a 3-dimensional variational (3DVAR) method. The MB ROMS has been systematically evaluated against observations during the August 2003 field experiment as part of Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN).
