Abstract: All models produce an educated guess at future ocean conditions. Ocean models perform particularly well at predicting phenomena such as tide height, but less well at predicting currents. The largest impediment to effective prediction is lack of data. Thus, GoMOOS data could revolutionize ocean prediction in the Gulf of Maine.

The GoMOOS ocean circulation model is a sophisticated computer program ... View entire text
