Estuarine inundation modelers are better able to set the initial condition for their forecast models through the use of MARACOOS surface and subsurface temperatures to improve estimates of upper ocean heat content; thickness of the wind-driven layer; and current/drifter data for assimilation, all delivered from the MARACOOS servers via OPeNDAP.
Estuarine inundation modelers are better able to evaluate forecast sea level uncertainties using the full ensemble of MARACOOS atmospheric forcing products with real time validation for each forecast storm delivered via the MARACOOS servers.
