River runoff Project

Goal / Main objective:

Make river runoff data available to NOOS partners for use in ocean hindcasting and forecasting, and assess the benefits derived.

Sub goals

  1. Make observations of river volume flux available to partners in near-real-time.
  2. Make high quality historical data sets of observed fluxes and loadings available to partners for hindcast studies.
  3. Assess the availability and applicability of prognostic river runoff data and make recommendations for further effort.
  4. Develop best practices for applying river runoff data in coastal ocean forecasting.

Survey of Best Practice:

Presented at 2020 annual meeting.
