Daily real-time analyses from the Harvard Ocean Prediction System HOPS are available from the table at right. Each X represents a product available for that particular day. Clicking on the X will display that product. Products are available for both the entire modeling domain, as well as a zoom on the Monterey Bay region. Available nowcast and forecast products include maps of temperature and salinity at 0m, 10m, 30m and 200m (200m only for the complete domain) and vertical sections of temperature offshore from Point Ano Nuevo, Monterey Bay and Point Sur for the date of the nowcast and for one and two day forecasts. Links on the individual product pages will return here.

The real-time analyses and forecasts are being produced under the guidance of Prof. Allan R. Robinson. The forecasts are being carried out at Harvard University by Dr. Patrick J. Haley, Jr. as well as special operational requests, including forecast skill metrics. Data processing, data filtering, model-data cross-checks, data analysis and web pages are the responsibility of Wayne G. Leslie. Dr. Pierre F.J. Lermusiaux is carrying out the ESSE forecasts and ocean forecast analysis as well as dynamical/numerical parameter tuning for HOPS. Valuable assistance in all facets of HOPS work has been given by: Dr. X. San Liang, Patricia Moreno and Oleg Logoutov.
