  • Abstract : Performance of the Navy's latest operational ocean forecast model (the Hybrid Coordinate Model, HYCOM, which became operational in March 2013) is systematically evaluated by comparing its velocity fields with actual ADCP velocities collected during a two-week cruise in the Agulhas Return Current region in 2012 (ARC 12). This chaotic region is complex and highly variable, with velocities sometimes exceeding 200 cm/s. Assessment using in-situ velocity measurements is very rare. This… CONTINUE READING
