Goal / Main objective:
Make river runoff data available to NOOS partners for use in ocean hindcasting and forecasting, and assess the benefits derived.
- Make observations of river volume flux available to partners in near-real-time.
- Make high quality historical data sets of observed fluxes and loadings available to partners for hindcast studies.
- Assess the availability and applicability of prognostic river runoff data and make recommendations for further effort.
- Develop best practices for applying river runoff data in coastal ocean forecasting.
Survey of Best Practice:
Presented at 2020 annual meeting.
