NOTICE of RTOFS Change:
Changes were made to operational RTOFS starting with the
0504202100 Z cycle to correct for a drift in assimilation of Absolute
Dynamic Topography (ADT) caused by changes in data processing.
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.
