Modeling Applications

The Caro-COOPS modeling system consists of connected, fully three-dimensional, time dependent, continental margin and estuary coupled hydrodynamic model. The coastal atmosphere and ocean modeling group at North Carolina State University has developed an adaptable grid Coastal and Estuarine Modeling and Environmental Prediction System (CEMEPS), which will be used as the backbone model for the system.

An initial demonstration of the real-time interdisciplinary forecast concept for Caro-COOPS will focus on development of real-time analyses of storm surge and flooding before and during landfall of coastal storms, to improve warnings and provide local officials with the information needed to focus on mitigation, preparedness, and prevention measures.
