Example of Third Generation of FVCOM-GoM/GB Results

The third generation of FVCOM-GOM/GB is the updated code that will be placed into the forecast operation. Two makor improvement here are 1) to increase the horizontal resolution at shelf break (to resolve the meso-scale variatibility of the shelfbreak front and water flux from the upstream slope) and 2) to build an intergrated GoM-inner bay and estuary model system through a nested approach.

The thrid generation of FVCOM-GoM/GB can be run by either of the inclusion of the whole grids (regional and estuarine) or by the nested approach. The nested approach is much efficient under the current limited computational power.
