Abstract : This Final Technical Report covers the research and work carried out from October 1994 to April 1996. The work here described formed part of the Coastal (Tactical) Oceanographic Program in coordination and collaboration with Rutgers University (Dr. Scott Glenn), JHU/APL (Drs. Lee Dantzler and David Scheer) and APL/UW (Dr. Robert Miyamoto). The work focused on I) scientific and technical issues related to the construction of environmental fields useful for coastal scene description via fusion of data streams and models; II) demonstration of the approach in a real time nowcast forecast exercise (Harvard/Saclant) in the Straits of Sicily (AlS94); and, III) application of the methodology to the Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf and shelf-slope region.
