Run COAMPS-TC (Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Model Prediction System-Tropical Cyclone) and the 11-member ensemble at high horizontal resolution (4 km) in real time during the 2022-2024 Atlantic and East Pacific hurricane seasons.
Produce approximately 3 hindcasts per year, with accurate tropical cyclone track, size and intensity, over the course of 3 years (for 9 total) for retrospective analysis given highly accurate atmospheric reforecasts and reanalyses.
Facilitate ingestion and analysis of the COAMPS-TC fields in real time for utilization by other teams.

The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season is just around the corner, officially beginning on June 1. New for this season, NRL-Monterey will provide deterministic COAMPS-TC® (Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System – Tropical Cyclone) forecast fields in real-time to NOPP Hurricane Coastal Impacts project partners, for the purpose of forcing surge/inundation/wave model forecasts for landfalling Atlantic tropical cyclones (TCs).
