Abstract : A first-generation automated data processing system for analyzing and predicting sea-temperature fields to a depth of 400 ft in the western Atlantic has been developed. Several studies conducted to improve the forecast capability of the system indicate that the present forecast accuracy is limited by noise due to advection and internal waves. Subsequent forecast improvement requires a knowledge of the advection and internal wave processes and the development of techniques to exploit this knowledge. (Author)
