TRACER MODELING WITH THE HYBRID COORDINATES OCEAN MODEL (HYCOM).

A series of tracer simulations are being conducted at NCEP/NWS for a variety of applications, from dispersion of radionuclide contaminants motivated by the Japanese nuclear accident near Fukushima, to nutrient estimations. The tracer capabilities of HYCOM are used, in regional domains, nested to daily nowcast/forecast fields from the 1/12° HYCOM (RTOFS-Global) model output. In this study, results are presented from the soon-to-be first operational ocean dispersion model at NCEP/NWS, addressing the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear accident, March 11, 2011. Similar tracer simulations are intended for applications like oil spills, radionuclides, and for ecosystem modeling.
