Abstract : This is the final technical report for the project, 'Development of Regional Coastal and Open Ocean Forecast System: Harvard Ocean Prediction System (HOPS).' This project was originally entitled, 'Development of a PE GULFCAST Scheme and the Impact of Real Time IES Data on GULFCASTS' and was retitled, 'Development of a Regional Coastal and Open Ocean Forecast System.' The research tasks for this project have been to: develop, calibrate and validate the primitive equation based dynamical model component of the system; develop and implement the software for a modular, integrated forecast system; identify and acquire models from the scientific community to be utilized as modules within the forecast system; distribute and support the use of HOPS outside of Harvard; and demonstrate and validate HOPS via real time exercises on sea and land.
