Technical Support and Improvement of FVCOM for NOAA Modeling Activities

The objectives of this project are 1) hold an FVCOM workshop at NOAA Coast Survey
Development Laboratory (CSDL) to update NOAA modelers on FVCOM and to address NOAA
questions; 2) host CSDL modelers for technical consultation at UMASS as needed, 3) hold
conference calls with CSDL modelers as needed, and 4) support CSDL in applying FVCOM
multi-domain nesting techniques. The one-way and two-way multi-domain nesting techniques are being developed for the US Northeast Coastal Ocean Forecast System (NECOFS). FVCOM teams will provide the updated examples of techniques used for NECOFS to support the NOAA modeling activities.
