Models

FWC bulletin cell counts are inputted into the West Florida Coastal Ocean Model (WFCOM) Nowcast/Forecast model as available based on 5 detection levels (present, very low, low, medium, high) to trace physical transport of the observed biomass at the surface and bottom.

West Florida Coastal Ocean Model (WFCOM) Nowcast/Forecast system uses FVCOM model nested into the global HYCOM. The model is forced by tides and NCEP atmospheric forcings. The N/F system performs 1-day hindcasts and 3.5-day forecasts and is updated daily at midnight.

FWC bulletin cell counts are inputted into the West Florida Shelf ROMS Nowcast/Forecast model as available based on 5 detection levels (present, very low, low, medium, high) to trace physical transport of the observed biomass.

West Florida Shelf (WFS) Nowcast/Forecast system uses ROMS model nested into the global HYCOM. The model is forced by tides and NCEP atmospheric forcings. The N/F system performs 1-day hindcasts and 3.5-day forecasts and is updated daily at midnight.
