Real-time Ocean Observations and Forecast Facility (ROOFF)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Provides the capability to visualize [HTML_REMOVED]ocean weather[HTML_REMOVED] for selected ocean regions. The collection of satellite observations with numerical circulation models is visually animated using daily update of observations systems combined with current ocean conditions derived from numerical models. The ROOFF presents monitoring and ocean tracking for physical and bio-optical conditions. This facility supports Navy programs and experiments by visually assembling new ocean products.DESCRIPTION: New satellite bio-optical and thermal ocean products are fused with different numerical models of physical properties to define the nowcast and forecast of ocean conditions. The room hosts the visualization of both the 2D and 3D ocean conditions for areas in which NRL experiments are being conducted (Gulf of Mexico, South Pacific, U.S. West Coast). The room provides a forum to determine integration of observations and models. The data fusion enables visual testing and validation of ocean products.INSTRUMENTATION: The ROOFF provides multiple large interactive display systems with specialized visualization software allowing scientists to interact with real-time data from satellites, models, and in situ data. These display systems are linked with the Division[HTML_REMOVED]s computer systems and updated in real time.
