  • Global NCOM is an ocean prediction system run by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) as the Navy's real-time operational global nowcast/forecast system. The Naval Research Laboratory developed NCOM based on the Princeton Ocean Model with time invariant hybrid (sigma over Z) vertical coordinates.
  • NOAA's Real Time Ocean Forecast system (RTOFS) - Atlantic is a data-assimilating nowcast-forecast system operated by the National Weather Service National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The model runs daily, producing a forecast out to 120 hours.
  • NOAA's Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) is a 30-year, coupled ocean-atmosphere-land surface analysis created by the National Weather Service National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The dataset provided here represents the ocean component of the CFSR, based on the the MOM4 ocean model with the Global Ocean Data Analysis System.

NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheets (NEWIS)

Containing valuable state and local emergency telephone numbers, NOAA websites, media outlets, and evacuation information for residents, NOAA's National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC) produces NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheets (NEWIS) each year for the Atlantic hurricane season.
