2:00 - 3:00pm Beyond the HAFS IOC: ocean and wave model (abstract)

HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) is the ocean component of the HAFS IOC, where the sea surface temperature (SST) is configured as the only ocean feedback variable. A study of coupling experiments using HWRF demonstrated that including sea surface current (SSC) as additional ocean feedback improves Vmax intensity skill by O(27%) and O(30%) in 2-way and 3-way coupling respectively, and also tracks skill for 3-way coupling (except 2-way coupling). This talk presents current and future plans for coupling and data assimilation.
