Abstract:
The University of South Florida is implementing a real-time Coastal Ocean Monitoring and Prediction System (COMPS) for West Florida that will provide additional data needed to give more accurate predictions of ocean storms and coastal flooding by storm surge. COMPS consists of an array of instrumentation both along the coast and offshore, combined with numerical circulation models, and builds upon existing in-situ measurements and modeling programs funded by various state and federal agencies. This observing system fulfills all of the requirements of the Coastal Module of the Global Ocean Observing System (CMGOOS). Data and model products are disseminated in real-time to federal, state, and local emergency management officials via the internet (URL "http://comps.marine.usf.edu/"). COMPS is designed to enable researchers to more accurately predict ocean storms and coastal flooding caused by storm surges. As a major component of this system, we are deploying 3 offshore buoys, armed with current, temperature, salinity, and meteorological sensors, with satellite telemetry of the data to shore, along the 50-meter isobath. In summary, the geological monitoring program is designed to measure the changes and response of nearshore and coastal environments that can be directly related to the primary driving mechanism - the physical oceanographic data sets generated by the real-time monitoring program. This provides an unprecedented opportunity to identify physical mechanisms driving coastal change. REAL-TIME DATA from the following USF stations is available: -West Florida Buoy, Central 50-meter isobath (site 22 on map): hourly updates. -Navy_2 Buoy (site 20 on map): hourly updates. -Anna Maria (site 23 on map): 12-minute updates. -Egmont Key (site 24 on map): 6-minute updates. -Northwest Florida Bay (site 8 on map): hourly updates, ten measurements per hour. -Bayboro Harbor (site 25 on map): hourly updates, ten measurements per hour. Test site at USF - instrumentation and service will vary. -Homossassa (site 43 on map): hourly updates, ten measurements per hour. -West Florida South 50m Buoy (site 12 on map): hourly updates, seven measurements per hour.
