Abstract : The purpose of this report is to contribute to the development of data assimilation techniques to specify open boundary conditions for coastal models in order to enhance the Navy's capabilities in the development of coastal nowcast/forecast systems. In most applications, coastal models are established as limited area models of fine resolution, for which the open boundary conditions are specified from extraneous sources, usually a deep ocean (basin) model and available observations. This requires the development of techniques to force models with available information along open boundaries and techniques for coupling coastal and basin scale models.
