Welcome to the Marine Modeling and Analysis Branch of the Environmental Modeling Center at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction in College Park, Maryland. We are responsible for the development of improved numerical marine forecasting and analysis systems within the NOAA National Weather Service.
The global operational Real-Time Ocean Forecast System (Global RTOFS) at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction is based on an eddy resolving 1/12° global HYCOM (HYbrid Coordinates Ocean Model) and is part of a larger national backbone capability of ocean modeling at the National Weather Service in a strong partnership with the US Navy.

About the Model
A third generation wave model run four times a day (00Z, 06Z, 12Z, and 18Z). Each run starts with 9-, 6- and 3-hour hindcasts and produces forecasts of every 3 hours from the initial time out to 180 hours (84 hours for the Great Lakes).
The Polar and Great Lakes Ice group works on sea ice analysis from satellite,
sea ice modeling, and ice-atmosphere-ocean coupling. Our work supports
the Alaska Region of the
National Weather Service, the Great
Lakes Marine Forecasting group in the Cleveland
NWSFO, and other groups, as well as the Environmental
Modeling Center, of which the ice group is a part.
