The NSF-ALPHA 2018 Real-Time Sea Exercise occurs in the Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard coastal region during August 1-19, 2018.

The specific objectives of the real-time exercise are to: (i) forecast the regional high-resolution ocean fields and their probability, using our ESSE methodology; (ii) utilize these fields and our Lagrangian methods to forecast Lagrangian Coherent Structures and Coherent Sets; (iii) forecast the probability and quantify the uncertainty of such Lagrangian quantities using stochastic differential equations, and (iv) provide quantitative guidance on ocean dynamics, optimal drifter deployments and optimal adaptive sampling. We thank all of the NSF-ALPHA team members for their inputs and collaboration.

This research is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
